Cocktails for Humanity


General Provision has committed the space and bar for concocting a delicious drink and lobbied for the community to spend one evening volunteering their time to tend or drink from said bar — all for a good cause. Each month Cocktails for Humanity chooses a local non-profit to donate all the tips and proceeds of the evening to. In September, during the monthly FATVillage Art Walk, it's the Broward Public Library Foundation.


All proceeds, including tips from beer, wine and cocktails served will benefit the Broward Public Library's Books ‘n’ Bears program.
