Raising Funds to Fight HIV/AIDS: Bartenders, Boxers and Briefs
Bill’s Filing Station’s annual Bartenders, Boxers and Briefs took place Monday and raised close to $10,000 for Tuesday’s Angels, a local non-profit that provides assistance to financially needy individuals with HIV/AIDS.
A few hundred people showed to attend the annual event where bartenders from local bars come out to model clothing items and then auction them off to raise money.
Some of the bars that sent bartenders include Rosie’s, Alibi, Ramrod, Monkey Business, Bill’s Filing Station, Scandals, Sidelines Sports Bar, Rumors, and Boardwalk. Pride Factory provided the apparel for the bartenders.
“The most important thing about this event, is the camaraderie, which brings most of the bars in our community together for one event,” said Vice President Tuesday’s Angels Chuck Nichols. “It’s not often that an event occurs in Fort Lauderdale where you have so many participating businesses. This is a win-win situation, everything all of the money they collected goes to Tuesday’s Angels. Every dollar we get goes to our clients, there is absolutely no overhead.”
