Benefit beverage news: Hi-Yu Brü preview; WestSide Baby cocktail-party addition

Two notes about thirst-quenching events that are also charity benefits:

EVENT #1: Check out the all-star crew we photographed Tuesday night at Company Bar in White Center, previewing Hi-Yu Brü before it goes out to the masses this Friday night! Proprietors of establishments participating in the release of the next West Seattle/White Center benefit beer gathered tonight with friends at Company for a tasting of sorts. As of 6 pm this Friday, Company is one of the places – along with Shadowland, Feedback Lounge, West 5, The Feedback Lounge, Mission, Big Al Brewing (which makes Hi-Yu Brü), The Bridge, Locöl, and Beveridge Place Pub. Also in the photo, by the way – front and center, in the gray-green shirt, that’s Tian Richardson, who came up with the winning name.

EVENT #2: At Tian’s left in the dark shirt is The Feedback’s Matt Johnson, who figures prominently in this next announcement about a separate benefit event coming up next month: Feedback Lounge has signed on as cocktail sponsor for WestSide Baby‘s upcoming “Shake, Rattle, and Roll” cocktail party benefit at The Hall at Fauntleroy on May 18th. (We’re told Matt himself will be there as guest master mixologist.) Tickets are available now; read on for the announcement of what’s new with the party plan:

WestSide Baby is hosting a benefit cocktail party and The Feedback Lounge has generously signed on to be the Signature Drink Sponsor! Amy Daly-Donovan, member of WestSide Baby Board of Directors, shares, “We are thrilled to announce that Matt Johnson and Jeff Gilbert at the Feedback Lounge enthusiastically agreed to partner with us for our Shake, Rattle & Roll party! Featuring Feedback Lounge cocktails makes the event that much more fun and their in-kind support helps us ensure that every dollar raised on May 18th will go toward our programs. Thank you Feedback Lounge!”

The community is invited to join WestSide Baby and Honorary Event Chairs Scott & Deborah Hazlegrove for a spectacular, fun-filled evening of rockin’ music, fabulous cocktails, and more … all for a great cause! Grab your tickets today before they sell out.

The news of Feedback Lounge’s partnership adds to other generous gifts of talent and treasure for the evening. Marty Riemer, of 103.7, “The Mountain” and fellow West Seattleite, will EmCee. Live music will be performed by local West Seattle band Not Dead Yet and a generous donor has offered to underwrite the costs of all the food for the evening. “WestSide Baby likes to keep fun involved in our fundraisers and community support with gifts like this mean that we can have a great evening and raise money to help local children in need without spending donor dollars on event costs. I am continuously amazed by Seattle’s generous spirit,” says Nancy Woodland, WestSide Baby Executive Director.

Additionally the event will feature a “petite but lively” auction (Spring Break ’13 in Palm Desert, anyone?), delicious appetizers by Tuxedos & Tennis Shoes, great beer and wine and fun chances to win free drinks. Party-goers will have also an opportunity to make a meaningful gift to WestSide Baby.

Special thanks to WestSide Baby’s Premier Event Sponsor: Lake Partners Strategy Consultants.
