Happy Hour for The Robbleheads

The Robbleheads planned a Happy Hour at the Brass Monkey, a local bar in Washington, DC on Friday, March 9th and earned $620 in three hours with a simple, easy to plan event. A friend of mine who is a bartender agreed to host the fundraiser at her bar so there were no expenses associated with the event – more money for research! I sent an e-mail out to a list of 50+ friends in the area inviting them to come have some drinks and support a good cause. I charged $10 at the door and the bar offered discounted beer & drinks for participants. People brought friends, coworkers, family, etc. With even just a $10 donation per person, the money raised added up quickly. Many of the attendees were fellow Kenyon College alumni, so I used a Kenyon stamp at the door so the bartenders would know who was “eligible” for discounted drinks. Now I am over halfway to my goal of raising $8,000 and The Robbleheads are closer to reaching our total goal of raising $15,000.
