BarLympics Event Starts

BarLympics Event Starts

Let the games begin! For the entire months of August and September there will be a wide variety of sporting and eating contests being held all over Sarasota.  In fact, 30 different bars will participate in this fun and sometimes crazy 60-day event.  You might ask yourself what is the purpose in this event?  The proceeds from this will go to benefit H.I.S.K.I.D.S., Inc., a nonprofit organization that helps families who are dealing with childhood cancer.  So…..step up and buy what is called a “Happy Hour Joker Card” for a mere $30 and you now have your pass to go, at your convenience, to any of the 30 participating bars to play the game they have selected (cornhole, or toss rings or darts or pool or on and on).  Your scores will be recorded and a grand tally will be recorded by the Beks Group, the organizer of the event.  Over the course of the 60 days you can check online to see how you are doing compared to others.  Prizes will be awarded at the end to top winners.  The truth is, however, everyone is a winner.  Folks will have visited new places and met new people.  Bar owners will have had seen their profits increase. And most important, a great cause will have been helped.
