With the recent hurricane and flooding in South Texas, the Dallas United States Bartenders Guild (USBG) rallied to host a charity event next Tuesday, Sept. 5, at the DEC on Dragon dubbed “All Hands on DEC”.
The Dallas hospitality industry is coming together to support residents in South Texas affected by Hurricane Harvey with a night of goodwill, fundraisers and great food and drinks. Bartenders, bar backs, chefs, event coordinators and more organized the event to benefit those affected in the south with all proceeds going equally to the USBG Houston to help displaced members and to the Greater Houston Community Foundation Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund.
Guests are invited to attend the public event for a $20 donation at the door or online, or $10 at the door with a donation of nonperishable food, clothing, water, or other items needed for those displaced. Box fans, air mattresses, baby bottles and diapers will also be accepted and will be sent to the Austin Disaster Relief Network. For a full list of items that are needed, please visit this site.
Fundraising events will be held throughout the night such as raffles and a silent auction for items donated by local businesses such as culinary experiences, themed baskets from spirits brands, cocktail classes and hotel stays. A live auction will also be held for attendees to bid for dates with eligible bartenders from across the city. Food items donated by Trompo Tacos, Stock & Barrel, Pokey O’s Cookies and Ice Cream, Bowen House and more will be available for purchase with food/drink tickets available at the door.
