Food from the Bar: Weekly Winners


New for the 2014 Campaign:  Weekly Winners!

Encourage your firm to become the top fundraiser for one of the first four weeks of the campaign, and depending on the week, you’ll benefit from one of the exciting experiences below!  Prizes will be awarded to the firm who raises the most online funds from Saturday to Friday of the prior week.  Offline donations will not be counted towards the Weekly Winners unless they are dropped off at the Food Bank, per the instructions below.

Please note that mailed donations will not be counted towards the Weekly Winner Prize.  However, if you collect money or checks at your firm, they can be counted toward the total for the weekly prize only if you drop them off at the Food Bank between Monday and Wednesday of that week to the attention of Emily Byram or Katy Mann.

Campari America is a proud supporter of the SF-Marin-Food Bank and excited to partner on three weekly prizes for each week’s top fundraising firm during the campaign.  For each week’s wining firm, Campari America and the SF-Marin Food Bank will provide a unique cocktail experience for up to 100 people in their office to reward the team their hard work, dedication and fundraising efforts. Please see packages listed below.

A fourth weekly prize will be provided by Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak San Francisco.  Details of each package are listed below.

 Week 2:  Bourbon Steak Pastries

 Week 3: Classic Cocktail Happy Hour*

Enjoy a classic cocktail happy hour from Campari America, highlighting three iconic cocktails that will never go out of style. Negronis, Old Fashioneds, Manhattans and Martinis are just as popular today as when they first wowed bar-goers of yesteryear. Using some of Campari America’s most popular and historic brands, including Campari, Wild Turkey and SKYY Vodka, the Classic Cocktail Happy Hour is the perfect solution for those who wish to enjoy a stylish and old school cocktailing experience.

 Week 4: Campari America Aperitivo Happy Hour*
