The Broward Public Library Foundation will participate in its fourth year of Cocktails for Humanity on Saturday, July 27, 2019. The event starts at 6:00 p.m. and goes until 11:00 p.m. All bartenders have volunteered their time to this event and to raising funds for the Broward County Library system. All proceeds, including tips from beer, wine and cocktails served will benefit free SAT/ACT preparation classes offered throughout the year at regional libraries for up to 450 high school sophomores and juniors. In addition, workshops on financial aid and college application essay writing are also offered, helping to better prepare college-bound students and their families for the college application and acceptance process.
Cocktails for Humanity takes place once a month at General Provision FATVillage. They have committed the space during the FATVillage Art Walk each month to a different charity. Last year, Broward Public Library Foundation exceeded its fundraising goal at this event and plans to beat that dollar amount this year.
