U.G.L.Y. Bartender of the Year Sponsorship 2012
Hoshizaki Lancer were very proud to be this year's major national sponsor of the Leukaemia Foundation's U.G.L.Y. Bartender of the Year competition.
The acronym stands for Understanding, Generous, Likeable, You - so don't be misled by the title! The U.G.L.Y. Bartender fundraiser competition is an annual campaign that raises money to fund blood cancer research and support patients and their families affected by leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma diagnosis.
The competition for 2012 has come to a close, but this year bartenders all around Australia raised a total of $1,167,982 to help Australian families impacted by blood cancer, just by taking part in the fundraiser.
U.G.L.Y. Bartender of the Year is an invaluable campaign that allows bartenders to have fun and build more meaningful relationships with customers and colleagues while raising awareness and funds for The Leukaemia Foundation.
This competition also has major significance to Hoshizaki Lancer, as in April of 2012 we farewelled our New Zealand Manager – Michael Abraham – who lost his battle with cancer. The inaugural Michael Abraham Memorial Trophy is awarded to the highest overall fundraiser of the competition, who this year is Belinda Marshall from NT. We wish to congratulate Belinda on a truly outstanding effort for this competition.
As a major sponsor of the U.G.L.Y. competition, we are delighted to award each of the above winners’ venues with one of our Hoshizaki ice machines worth $7,500!
In regional areas, bars, pubs and clubs are at the heart of the community, and were delighted to be able to support Australia's bartenders in this worthy cause.
Here's cheers to a great 2012 campaign and to an upcomming and even better 2013 campaign!
