Bank & Bourbon fund-raiser to help school teachers

Go out for the evening, and help a teacher.

DonorsChoose.org, which helps teachers fund their classroom projects, will be the beneficiary of the second annual Bourbon Bash party at Bank & Bourbon, on the ground floor of the Loews Philadelphia at 1200 Market St.

This year's event - from 6 to 9 p.m. April 26 - will feature food from B&B's executive chef Thomas Harkins and cocktails from the restaurant's "bourbon master," Paul Zuber.

Last year's event raised $35,000.

DonorsChoose.org allows teachers to post classroom project requests. When a project reaches its funding goal, DonorsChoose ships the materials to the school.  

Tickets are $49.99 per person here.
