Our Second Annual Celebrity Bartending Event
Celebrity Bartenders Tom Caffrey, Michael Gallucci and Steve Sather
This event is one of our most popular! Last year we raised over $2500.00 for the school with just our 3 bartenders! This year, we are hoping to host this event on the EAST side of Volusia County at Port Orange's Tomoka Brewery (this is it!) AND on the WEST side at DeLand's Persimmon Hollow Brewery.
How this event works is EASY! "Celebrity" bartenders compete for your tips, and win these lovely plaques for all their hard efforts.

Supporters can "tip" their favorite bartender in many ways: First, if you know you can't attend, you can tip in your absence via this webpage and our paypal/VISA option. Just tell us the name of your preferred bartender and we'll make sure he gets the tip!
Next you can JOIN US for the event and tip in their designated jars - cash AND credit work that night!
Finally, you can collect tips from your office, friends and extended family in the name of the bartender you're rooting for, and mail the check to us (or present it that night) here at the school! Each classroom will be assigned to support one of our celebrity bartenders! This means these family members and their friends are "rooting" (and therefore tipping) this bartender! The winner will be announced that night!
Worthy of note was the bartender last year who found a matching sponsor!! This helped her win and it really helped the school - we used the funds to pay the application and audit fees for our accreditation. This year we continue to need funding for the accreditation process; there are annual fees, auditor fees, and application fees that meet us every step of the way!
Thank you in advance to Tomoka Brewing Company for hosting this event along with their BOOS and BREWS costume party!
Feel free to dress in your favorite costume that night! Last year, we had team T-shirts made by our bartenders!!
This year a costume party makes this event so much more fun!! Included, will be a silent auction event as we have asked local businesses to donate gift cards, services, and baskets for you to bid on!
