–Support Horton’s Kids  –  During the month of December 2019, Beau Thai Mt Pleasant will sparkle with tinsel and lights. We will donate ten percent of sales from sparkling wines, sparkling mocktails and sparkling cocktails (like our Sparkling Lemongrass!) to the non-profit Horton’s Kids. Customers will have the opportunity to donate to Horton’s Kids when settling their bills.  Horton’s Kids empowers children growing up in one of DC’s most under-resourced communities so that they graduate from high school ready for success in college, career, and life. They serve 500 children in grades K-12 living in Wellington Park, a neighborhood where 80 percent of adults don’t have a high school diploma and the average annual household income is less than $10,000. Horton’s Kids’ goal is to change the life trajectory of children by providing academic, youth development, and health and basic needs supports. Their impact is dramatic: in fact, children in Horton’s Kids are twice as likely to graduate from high school.  Sparkle will take place through December 31 at both Beau Thai locations, MtP & Shaw.
