Negroni for a Good Cause

We’re well on our way into Negroni Week, and all the great things that come with it.

Sure, having a tasty negroni is a reward all in itself, but having a negroni during negroni week presents another fantastic reward. All participants of Negroni Week have chosen a charity and will be donating a proceed of negroni sales to these charitable organizations. Funds raised will go to local charities, assisting needy and abused animals, low-income families, families in need of emergency assistance, missions, local work programs, and the like. Check out Imbibe and Campari’s Negroni Week website for details on participating bars, and their charities of choice.

When you’re done exploring what Negroni Week has to offer, stop by The Upstairs for a classic negroni, or one of our super delicious variations of it. Proceeds from the sale of these negronis, or negroni-based cocktails will go to benefit Pike Market Child Care and Preschool (PMCCP).

PMCCP is a child care and preschool center located in Pike Place Market and provides high quality child care and preschool education to families around the Seattle area. The best part about PMCCP is that they provide sliding fee scale tuition based on the family size and the family income. Over 70% of all the families served by PMCCP are at or below the poverty level, so the child care and preschool center works to bridge the gap between high quality care and those with limited incomes.

PMCCP also provides healthy breakfasts, lunch, and snacks to the children in attendance, utilizing fresh fruits and vegetables, and ensuring that all meals are balanced and providing the nutrients kids need to thrive. We love the PMCCP uses fresh ingredients from the Market, and takes the kids out on regular walks around the market to see vendors in action and sample fresh fruits and vegetables. Nutrition education is the keystone to a healthy life, and PMCCP does a fantastic job at ensuring that all the kids they care for have access to nutrition, fresh foods, and learn all about the importance of healthy meal options.

We’re proud to offer our donation to allow PMCCP to continue providing high quality care, healthy meals, and much needed assistance to Seattle families regardless of their income level.
