Ruhstaller x Verge

The party may be over, but our fundraiser with Ruhstaller sure isn't!

Don't forget that for the rest of June, a portion of the proceeds from each Ruhstaller sold at the locations listed above will benefit Verge! So be sure to patronize these restaurants, order a Ruhstaller, and feel good about helping out the Sacramento arts scene. It's as easy as that!

Tap Into Art!

For the month of June, Ruhstaller, in collaboration with some of the area's finest restaurants and bars, will be hosting a promotion where a portion of the proceeds off of every Ruhstaller sold in those locations will benefit Verge.
