DALLAS, TEXAS (October 6, 2021) — Bar Louie is eager to launch its newest Cocktails For A Cause partnership with Operation Homefront (OH), a national nonprofit organization whose mission is to build strong, stable, and secure military families. For nearly 20 years, they’ve helped fulfill more than 46,000 requests for Critical Financial Assistance totaling more than $30 million, as well as offering a variety of relief, resiliency and recurring support programs for military families. "Operation Homefront is proud to partner with Bar Louie in support of our military and veteran families,” said Jill Eskin-Smith, Vice President of Corporate & Foundation Partnerships for Operation Homefront. "Cocktails For A Cause provides a wonderful opportunity for Bar Louie and their loyal customers to demonstrate their ongoing commitment to helping America’s military families start strong and stay strong throughout their journeys."
Since 2016, Bar Louie has partnered with OH, donating more than $125,000 to date. Beginning October 6th through January 4th, Bar Louie will donate $1 from each purchase of the Bourbon Apple Highball to OH as our way of supporting families that have served and sacrificed so much for our communities and our country. This season’s cocktail features Maker’s Mark Bourbon, Pama Liqueur, apple, cranberry, lemon, and Fever Tree Ginger Beer, topped with crispy apple chips. Guests can also contribute by making a $1, $5, or $10 donation during checkout, in-store and online.
As an arm of Bar Louie’s charitable giveback program Louie Loves, Cocktails For A Cause offers a unique way for guests to give back to their community every quarter. “As we all begin to gather with one another again preparing for and enjoying the holiday season, we see it more important than ever to work more closely with this organization, supporting active and retired military families,” said Tom Fricke, Chief Executive and Marketing Officer. “As a former Naval Intelligence Officer, I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to serve and am able to help those who have given so much to our country.”
Raise a glass to those who serve! For every Bourbon Apple Highball sold through Jan 4th, @BarLouie will donate $1 to support military families. @operationhomefront. #CocktailForACause TweetTweets by barlouie
