On Tuesday, Sept. 16, dozens of guests packed Jordan’s Steak Bistro in Wellington for the inaugural Stars Behind the Bar celebrity bartending event benefiting Clinics Can Help.
The event featured tasty tidbits, the chance to win some incredible auction items, and of course, libations made by the celebrity bartenders.
“I am humbled by the support of so many and thrilled that we were able to raise money to help bring much-needed medical equipment and supplies to a greater number of people in our community,” said Silvia Garcia, celebrity bartender and board member of Clinics Can Help, who helped to raise close to $2,000 for the nonprofit with this event.
Also participating as a celebrity bartender was Dr. Faustino Gonzalez and Sherry Eastwood, who served a variety of drinks to guests while collecting tips for the nonprofit they hold dear to their heart.
“We are incredibly grateful to Jordan’s Steak Bistro for hosting us for this event and for the extras they provided us,” said Owen O’Neill, executive director of Clinics Can Help. “It is because of community members like Jordan Naftal, who open their door to us, and for those who so generously support us, that we are able to help close to 2,000 children and adults each year.”
In attendance for Clinics Can Help’s Stars Behind the Bar event were Brian Edwards, Donna Barry, Donna Folger, Karis Engle, Natalie Stolbach, Jim Coleman, Kathy and Al Dorsey, Joyce and Tom Parker.
