What is a Celebrity Bartender event?

A celebrity bartender event is a fundraiser where well-known people in the community get behind the bar to serve your drinks all for a good cause. Admission is free of charge. In our case, our bartenders are pouring to raise funds for JA programs, empowering youth to own their economic success. Donations to JA come through your tips to the bartenders, so tip well! 100% of bar and online tips will benefit JA programs for the youth of Western MA. Please invite friends, family, and co-workers! It will certainly be a fun night out. We encourage you to support the establishment holding our event, Plan B Burger Bar, through the purchase of dinner.

What can I expect? Why should I come?

You can expect to see a lot of people you know! From friends and family, to city officials, business and community leaders,a number of people will be in attendance. So, you can enjoy great company, fun trivia, delicious food and drinks while supporting financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship programs for our youth. Additionally, you will have a chance to win some great raffle prizes with the purchase of raffle tickets.
