We had an awesome time at the 3rd Annual Mac & Cheese Throwdown and Bartender Showdown that took place on Sunday, October 21, 2018. The throwdown is hosted every year by Relish Craft Kitchen & Bourbon Bar to help raise money for different causes. This year the proceeds went to Hope Center at Pullen. The Hope Center at Pullen helps local youth who are aging out of foster care.
Bartenders from Relish, Oak & Dagger Public House, Sidebar, Kaiju, Parliament, and Market Hall were all in the competition for best cocktail. Jeff Taylor represented Dram & Draught Raleigh and brought home the gold… well, the golden shaker that is. Congratulations, Jeff! Jeff is pictured below celebrating his win with fellow Dram bartender Ray.
We had an awesome time as always and are already preparing for next year.
Learn More About The Hope Center at Pullen
The Hope Center at Pullen was formed to address the needs of the homeless population in Wake County. After discovering that many of the individuals seeking help had a history in foster care, they narrowed their mission in 2013 to singularly focus on young people with a history in foster care.
The mission of the Hope Center at Pullen is to connect young people aging out of foster care in Wake County with the resources and support they need for a successful transition to adulthood. Learn more at HopeCenteratPullen.com.
