Come out to support the Little Giraffe Foundation at Battle of the Bartenders on January 17! The money raised will support neonatal research as well as parents and patients in the neonatal intensive care unit. We will begin at 6pm and it could go all night! Our guest bartenders, Little Giraffe Board Members, will be behind the bar around 7.

***$10 donations will be accepted at the door to go specifically to the charity that you are there to represent but this donation is optional.
