Head to The Baxter Inn on Sunday, February 17, to do some good with your booze bucks. The popular whisky den is hosting Drink4Uganda, a charity initiative that will see some of Sydney's best bartenders join forces.
The event will feature pop-up bars by Ramblin' Rascal, Bulletin Place, Maybe Sammyand Lobo Plantation, along with a 'secret team', to be revealed on the day. Each will shake and stir for 45 minutes, competing to see who can raise the most in the short time slot. While there is no entry fee, a donation is suggested on the door. After that, punters can purchase drink tokens and raffle tickets to use throughout the festivities.
All proceeds will be donated to 663toZERO, an organisation that provides clean drinking water to the 663 million people worldwide who currently do not have access to this basic human need. Founder Mitch Horrocks created OKUZi — a simple water filter — and has already brought the device to 24,000 people. Drink4Uganda already hit Melbourne and Perth earlier this year, too, raising $23,000 in the process.
Drink4Uganda runs from 4–9pm, and PS40 is hosting the afterparty — with six cocktails on tap and a DJ — from 9pm till late.
