In preparation for October’s AIDS Walk, Mazzoni Center teamed up with Tabu Sports Bar and Lounge to raise funds for the Mazzoni Center’s team. Three separate fundraisers were constructed to raise awareness – and funds – for the walk:
-- September 21 – Happy Hour Event – The first event, a happy hour martini event, capitalized on the popular $5 martini happy hour by donating proceeds from that happy hour event to the AIDS Walk.
-- October 4 – Karaoke Event – The second event, held on Thursday’s karaoke night, gave the team members an opportunity to sing their hearts out for the night, with a portion of all bar sales benefiting the AIDS Walk.
-- October 19 – Wine & Cheese Event – The final event, held on the weekend of the Walk, was designed as a thank you to the volunteers and Tabu’s regular customers who support the many causes Tabu supports. Barefoot Wine stepped in to donate wine for the event, and Tabu’s General Manager Freddy Shelley donated an assortment of cheese for this complimentary event celebrating the Mazzoni Center’s team’s efforts in raising money for the AIDS Walk.
