Helping Bartenders thru Education



On June 18th, 2001, at the Bartender Appreciation Day, in N.Y.C., the Bartenders' Foundation awarded its first scholarship. This lucky bartender, or one of their children, will receive a $5,000 scholarship, with payments to be made over the next four years.  

2001 Award:
While most high school seniors wouldn't miss an issue of Cosmo or Maxim, April Hays of Chester, N.J. sings the praise of a trade publication, Bartender Magazine.  April, who's mother Joanne has been a bartender at the Old Mill Tavern in Chester for over 16 years, recently became the first recipient of the magazine's Bartender Foundation scholarship to help fund her education for the next four years at New York University.

2002-2003 Award:
We will continue to sponsor our 2001 Award Winner, April Hays, as she continues her education.

Please donate so we can afford to award another bartender or one of their children.

We will be announce all winners here in the future.  Check back for additional information.

Bartender Magazine had intended to present each award at the BARTENDER's yearly Bartender Appreciation Day, where the liquor industry is given the perfect opportunity to say a loud and hearty 'thank you' to their best customers, you, the Bartender!
