One of Manayunk and Roxborough's biggest and most impactful nonprofits—the North Light Community Center—hosts a large fundraiser Thursday.
The fourth annual "Pints for North Light" combines the long-standing human services group with the Manayunk Brewery & Restaurant's love of suds.
"The funds raised through this event are critical to North Light’s continued work in the community. Your participation helps provide food for families in need, quality day care for children and job training and academic supports for teens," according to a news release.
