Celebrity Bartenders Raise Money Locally
Sunday was a busy day, with the Patriots winning the nail biter and the New Bedford Salvation Army scoring big time with the annual 6th Bristol Club’s Celebrity Bartenders and Raffle event, that attracted hundreds of generous people and families. In past years, $10,000 has been raised and donated to The Neediest Family Fund. Truth be told, the club should had fired me for mixing up mixed drinks (a club regular complained it was the worst Bacardi and Coke she had ever had), asking customers to repeat their bar order a few times (did you say Bud or Bud Light?) and generally being in every ones way! But I smiled my way through greeting old friends and accepting tips that went straight to the charity. The entire staff at the 6th Bristol is awesome and so are the many people who made the yearly event a true success! And I’ll drink to that!
