How The Tickets Will Support Those In Need

  • Kate and Jordan Bazinsky, a local family from Newton and regulars at Baramor, have two young children: Nora and Colin. Colin has severe hemophilia A. Since Colin’s diagnosis was a surprise, NEHA has been a tremendous source of education and support for the Bazinsky’s. In particular, Colin is looking forward to learning how to self-infuse his IV medication this summer at NEHA’s family camp. 
  • While this event is a fun competition among local bars, it is also a vital fundraiser that supports the New England Hemophilia Association’s mission to provide education, support, and advocacy to families, like the Bazinsky’s. 

A Look Back at Our 2019 Competition

While this event was held virtually in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to host it in-person once again! Watch this highlight video from 2019 as nearly a dozen Providence bars battled to see who could pour the best bloody mary.
