This weekend, we at Blue, Inc. held a charity event to raise money for Operation Smile. A select few of us guest bartended at an Elgin local bar called Booker's, and all of the tips earned went to an amazing charity. For those of you who are not familiar with Operation Smile, it is an organization that provides free surgeries for children in third world countries that are born with cleft pallates and lips. This event was definitely a fun way to raise money for Operation Smile, those who were able to participate in bartending had not bartended ever before so it was a new experience for them. " I was able to cross 'bartending' off of my bucket list, and we were able to make someone in another part of the world smile; its a cool thing," says Manager Wrinardo McKennedy. This was definitely an out of the box way to raise money for a charity, but that is the kind of creativity we like around here at Blue!
Stay tuned for our next fun event!
