Foodie Blog Event: Cocktail Industry’s Benevolence Account
Join us tomorrow, Tuesday, July 8 7pm- 10pm at Hotel Zazza as some of the top bartenders in town try to impress YOU — as well as raise funds for CIBA: The Cocktail Industry Benevolance Account.
Your drink is your vote — Bartenders are challenged to create a new concoction… using something from the Mysterious Ke’ family of spirits at it’s core — and share it with the crowd.
CIBA (the Cocktail Industry’s Benevolence Account) is our opportunity to help serve those that serve us. CIBA has been created to fill a desperate need in an industry where few employees have health insurance, and even fewer that occasionally needed ‘safety net’ — and where a brief illness, incidental accident, or a mere life ‘surprise’ can render them unable to work. For employees who depend on nightly tips to pay their bills, this can be devastating.
Stewardship for the fund is made up of an eclectic board of professionals representing every facet of the Cocktail Industry, and requests for disbursals remain anonymous. These one-of grants from CIBA are designed to support those experiencing extreme hardship and can be applied for by going to www.supportCIBA.org
