Serve up a Cure: YPEM's Battle of the Bartenders

Expect Miracles Foundation’s young professional group (YPEM) gathered on Thursday, February 22, 2018 at WorkHouse NYC for some friendly bartending competition. Serve Up a Cure: YPEM’s Battle of the Bartenders brought together 100 young professionals from 30 companies to watch the YPEM Leadership Team members battle it our for the title of “Top YPEM Bartender.”

Bartenders got behind the bar to demonstrate their skills and fight it out for the most “tips.” “Tips” were raffle tickets purchased by guests to be awarded to the bartender they believed deserved the title of “Top YPEM Bartender.” If they liked what the bartender was serving up, they dropped their tip into the bartender’s tip bucket. At the end of the night, there was a raffle drawn from the tip bucket of the winning bartender.

Attendees enjoyed the signature drinks of the night, refreshing Sam Adam’s beers and perfectly mixed Gosling’s Dark 'n Stormy cocktails, as well as food generously provided by Uncle Paul’s Pizza, Ess-a-Bagel, Earl of Sandwich, Nino’s 46, and St. Pat’s Bar & Grill. Guests also had the opportunity to network, mingle, and learn more about the 2nd Expect Miracles Annual Kan Jam Classic coming up on Friday, April 6, and even play a game of table-top Kan Jam.

Congratulations to the winning bartender Brianna Day of EY, who faced some stiff competition from runner-up Luci Strauss of Goldman Sachs Asset Management. 75% of net proceeds from the event will be directed to the Expect Miracles Foundation College Scholarship, which is awarded each year to a student who is currently undergoing treatment or has survived cancer. 25% will be directed to cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

Thank you to everyone who attended for all the support in the fight against cancer. We look forward to seeing all of you at the 2nd Annual Expect Miracles Kan Jam Classic on Friday, April 6, 2018!
