After a three-year-long pause due to COVID-19, Shaken & Stirred is finally returning to benefit Universal Preservation Hall in Saratoga Springs.
The Shaken & Stirred Celebrity Bartender Party is an annual fundraiser for UPH. Local businesses team up to compete against each other, bartending for the most tips. The team that raises the most during their shift wins.
This year’s event will be 5:30-9 p.m. Thursday, May 18 at the Saratoga National Golf Course.
“We’re excited to bring back this important fundraiser. All proceeds raised go towards our education programs through the Collaborative School of the Arts, which is an incredibly important aspect of arts for youth in our area.” Teddy Foster, director of Universal Preservation Hall.
The vision of the Collaborative School of the Arts is to provide extensive performing arts opportunities with instruction by regional and national professionals. Its programs inspire and cultivate career paths for students in creative fields while developing and welcoming a diverse palette of artists.
Tuition assistance ensures student accessibility across Proctors Collaborative, including UPH’s summer program Rock Camp.
Past champions of Shaken & Stirred include DeCrescente Distributing Co, Julie & Co. Realty and Adirondack Trust Company. For more information, go to universalpreservationhall.org. There is no cover charge for this event.
