Cocktails for a Cause Kick-off picks winners
Ten Carroll County nonprofits gathered Thursday, Feb. 9, to choose their month for the 2017 Cocktails for a Cause season. Sponsored by Main Street Eureka Springs, Cocktails for a cause takes place every second Thursday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Each nonprofit brought their supporters and board of directors to share about what their organization is doing and to take part in voting for that night’s donation. Each guest was given a voting dot to make their selection between one of the 10 chosen nonprofits, and Good Shepherd Humane Society was the winner with 22 votes. GSHS will receive a check for their portion of the donation for the evening.
Each nonprofit then selected their month by a random drawing, creating the 2017 Cocktails for a Cause schedule. This year’s schedule includes The Purple Flower in March, the Eureka Springs Community Center in April, The Writers Colony in June, the Eureka Springs School of the Arts in July, Good Shepherd Humane Society in August, People Helping People in September, Five and Dime Drama Collective in October, Eureka Springs Trails in November and Main Stage in December.
Main Street Eureka Springs also chose its wild card nonprofit, winning a Cocktails for a Cause event in May. Project Self-Esteem was the winner of that.
Cocktails for a Cause helps raise funds for nonprofits directly impacting the quality of life in Carroll County. For more information on Main Street Eureka Springs, visit MainStreetEurekaSprings.org.
