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

Thursday, February 28, 2019 | 6:00PM-8:30PM
21 W 46th St, New York, NY 10036

Expect Miracles Foundation’s young professional group (YPEM) gathered on Thursday, February 28, 2019 at McFadden’s in New York City for some friendly bartending competition for a great cause. The Second Annual Serve Up a Cure: YPEM’s Battle of the Bartenders, brought together over 100 young professionals from over 30 companies to watch the YPEM Leadership Team members battle it our for the title of “Top YPEM Bartender" and to raise some significant funds for the fight against cancer. 

YPEM Leadership Team Members were the bartenders for the night, and they each got behind the bar to demonstrate their pouring skills and fight it out for the most “tips.” Guests purchased “tip tickets” and awarded them 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, tickets were drawn from each bucket to win some great prizes.
Attendees enjoyed drinks and appetizers while networking with their peers and cheering on their favorite bartenders. Congratulations to the winning bartender Emily Roberts of BlackRock, 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 3rd Annual Expect Miracles Kan Jam & Cornhole Classic on Friday, April 26, 2019!
