Wow, what an incredible turnout for last night’s Celebrity Bartender Night at Noodles. Just Like Family Home Care presented the evening as a way to raise awareness and funds for local seniors in need. For $20, guests received a drink ticket and wristband for a sushi buffet. $10 went back to Noodles and $10 went to St. Matthews House. For two and a half hours, 16 celebrity bartenders in the medical field poured drinks (in 30 minute shifts) and worked for tips behind the bar. I am not sure what the total count is just yet, but there were at least four tip jars and they were all full and that was amazing to see.
Not only that, but we had a donation box out front to collect new items for our Senior Collection Drive and the box was full! I couldn’t believe how generous everyone was
It was a huge success and great event to celebrate Senior Citizens Month and our Senior Collection Drive. Friends of the celebrity bartenders came out to support and we got to meet some new faces! Just Like Family is very passionate about helping the community, especially seniors. We will be collecting NEW items for our Senior Collection Drive through the end of the month so if you have any items you can bring them directly to Just Like Family Home Care or we can send our Concierge Transport Service vehicle to pick up the items.
A HUGE thank you to Noodles, our celebrity bartenders and everyone who came out! I can’t wait to do another event very soon!
