About the Event

The 12 Bars of Des Moines was created this year to help local charities build awareness, attract local members, and raise money for their organizations. In addition, we aim to drive revenue to the local bars and restaurants. This being the first year, we are expecting to raise over $7,000 for local Des Moines charities! When you purchase a ticket, $10 goes directly to the charity you sign up under.
