Beginning on Wednesday, January 28, Chapel Tavern will host a monthly event dubbed Reno Wild Life (RWL) to celebrate the vast array of outdoor adventure found in the region – all to benefit nonprofits that support both the environment and those who revel in it.

On the last Wednesday evening of each month from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., outdoor films featuring sports from around the area will be shown on a big screen while Chapel serves up their signature libations, craft brews and biodynamic wines.

Raffle prizes provided by RWL event partners Patagonia, plus local outfitters related to the sport being highlighted that night will also be given away. Guests providing a minimum $5 suggested donation to the nonprofit of the evening upon entry will receive a raffle ticket; five tickets will be received for a $20 donation to the cause.

Additional offerings for January’s RWL will include high-end Patagonia merchandise, a pair of Moment skis, KTHX-FM swag, plus beer lovers can try Great Basin Brewery’s limited release “Moment Deathwish” Pale Ale. Raffle proceeds that evening will go to benefit The Nature Conservancy in Nevada.
