Who knew charity could be so revealing?
Welcome to the annual â€śBartenders, Boxers and Briefsâ€ť underwear auction hosted by Georgieâ€™s Alibi. The fundraising event is scheduled for July 17 at 8 p.m. at the Wilton Manors hotspot. Proceeds benefit Tuesdayâ€™s Angels, a Fort Lauderdale based HIV/AIDS service organization.
â€śItâ€™s a fun event and what I like about it is itâ€™s so unusual,â€ť said Chuck Nicholls, Tuesdayâ€™s Angels Vice President.
More than $100,000 has been raised from the event, which places area bars and businesses in competition to produce prize-winning packages. Billâ€™s Filling Station, Nicholls said, launched the event 12 years ago. As reported last year in SFGN, bartenders representing the Alibi, Boardwalk, Beefcakes Grill, Hunterâ€™s Nightclub, Village Pub and Scandalâ€™s Saloon participated.
Don Clark, general manager of Georgieâ€™s Alibi, called the 2016 event, which raised $9,000, a â€śsuccessful night.â€ť Tuesdayâ€™s Angels, Clark said, fills the gaps missed by government agencies in regard to the care of people living with HIV/AIDS. The non-profit assists men, women and children with a variety of needs from water and electric bills to transportation to air conditioning repair.
