The Story

The Story

3rd year anniversary

What once started as a one-night fundraiser has now grown into the largest consumer focused cocktail celebration, with a packed 72 hours of events and parties for over 3500 mixology enthusiasts in attendance from across the nation. This year proves to be the biggest year yet. Join us as we celebrate the love of the cocktail!

The Cause

Helen David Relief Fund

The Helen David Bartender Relief Fund honors the memory of the beloved Port Huron, MI bar owner and community leader who passed from breast cancer. Beating breast cancer twice during her life, Helen David is an inspiration to those living with the disease. The fund directly supports bartenders in need with important (and expensive) pre-screenings, utility support, and more.
