Guest Bartending Event hosted by Young Survivors by Rachel, Jeannine, Jackie & Maureen - 3 months ago
"This photo is from a guest bartending happy hour event we held at a local Irish pub in Downtown Philly named Fado! For an hour we raised tips to help fund our new young survivor initiative, in which we have partnered with Susan G. Komen to create called "The Big Pink Footprint". The Philadelphia affiliate is currently the only affiliate in the country to have this initiative, which focuses on the unique needs of breast cancer survivors who were diagnosed between the ages of 20-40. Our goal is to turn this into a national presence, so we work hard and want everything we do to make an impact! With each of us being young survivors, we ordered these incredible tank tops from Customink, who helped us customize each tank to display our individual ages at diagnosis. Knowing that happy hours in the city can get pretty packed and noisy, we wanted to wear something that would make an impact, and what would be better than revealing to the patrons of the pub something they can truly relate to - - - our age!! It was a truly inspiring event and we ended up raising over $500 in only one hour! In addition, we received so much amazing feedback from those who saw our ages and were inspired to stay aware! We plan on doing many many more of these types of events, which is why I am so thankful that we also ordered these in light pink and black! Customink made the entire experience an absolute breeze: from being able to customize these tanks on our own so that we knew exactly what to expect, to working with the absolute best customer service we have ever worked with, every part of the process was made to be easy and enjoyable. The crew at Customink even helped us put a rush on the order, despite the custom detail, so that we would have them in time for the event!! They kept in constant contact and informed us of every possible way we could make these tank tops amazing - and as you can see they turned out to be just that!"
