Drink and Draw event at brewery a fundraiser for arts

EUGENE, Ore. - Ninkasi and DIVA, the Downtown Initiative for the Visual Arts, teamed up for a fundraising event.  Around a dozen local artists gathered at Ninkasi's outdoor patio to Drink and Draw.

From 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, 25 percent of every pint purchased went to support DIVA, a local non-profit organization working to elevate arts and culture in the community. 

Funds raised will help support upcoming projects for the organization as well as educational programs.

In addition to the fundraising, DIVA provided a live model for artists to draw, sketch or paint.
