12 Cheers for 20 Years: April

I don’t know how many of you know this…but I was named an Official PACE Girl by the PACE Girls when they nominated the Oyster Bars for the Corporate Spirit Award at the Manatee Community Foundation’s Spirit of Manatee Awards. With their great nomination and even better introductory video at the luncheon we were honored to be named to receive that award. Click here to watch the video!

That’s one reason that April is PACE Center For Girls Month as we continue our Year-Long 20th Birthday Celebration. We’re selling ducks in addition to Dos Equis and our Birthday Cocktail raising money for PACE this month

April means DUCKS! …and the annual PACE Center for Girls Lucky Ducky Race for PACE where you can adopt a duck and help a girl…and even win the BEST 2nd prize ever… Dinner for 2, once a week at the Anna Maria Oyster Bar………who needs a new car when you can have dinner with us, right?

Huge shout out to our friends at Cox Chevrolet for donating the 1st Prize package of a 2 year lease on a Chevy Cruz…or $6,000 in cash… (sidenote: you can buy a lot of margaritas for $6,000!)

Race for PACE

Celebrate 20 years of cheers with our birthday cocktails all year long!

So tomorrow (Thursday, April 20)…………. 100% of the proceeds of our

Birthday Cake Cocktail will go to PACE Center for Girls Manatee …and for the rest of the April, $2 of each sale will benefit this great organization as well. You can also order a Dos Equis draft beer………. since twenty in Roman Numerals is XX, we’ve partnered with Dos Equis …(and by association, the Most Interesting Man in the World) to also add proceeds of the sale of Dos Equis to our charities all year!

Be sure to stay tuned for our May happenings………..next month we’ll

talk about the Horne & Moon Scholarship Fund………supported by our annual event, the Horne & Moon Social, which raises funds each year to help adults change their lives through vocational training at Manatee Technical School. Click here to learn more about our Social (October 21st this year).

Speaking of celebrating all year long…February was an excellent month for Tidewell donations…in addition to the 20th drinks and all month long…we also did our annual BBQ Rib Day on Chef Jerry’s Birthday…we presented the proceeds ($4,887.34) from February to Tidewell recently.
