Cheers! Community Members Bartend for Betterment: Pic of the Day

Patch Editor Morgan Day and TJ Murphy, immediate need recipient through the Foundation for Community Betterment, served up some drinks inside the Barrel Room Monday to raise money for the philanthropic organization

I think it was clear after Monday night: TJ Murphy and I will stick to our day jobs.

With shaky hands and faulty memories (what did you order again?), we served up drinks that night inside the to raise money for the Canton Chapter of the Foundation for Community Betterment. 

All tips and 10 percent of sales will benefit the recipients for this year's fifth annual Rocktoberfest event, which takes place at 6 p.m. Sept. 29 at the Cultural Center for the Arts, 1001 Market Ave. N., Canton. Tickets are $45 a person, $80 for a couple and $50 at the door. You can get tickets through any Betterment member or through the group's website.

In all, I had a wonderful time Monday night giving back to a great community organization like Betterment and doing so with someone like TJ, an immediate need recipient through Betterment (remember when the after this year?).

We raised more than $300 in tips, plus 10 percent of the sales that night. I think that's a success!

I have been a 'guest bartender' twice at The Barrel Room to raise funds for two organizations. It is a fun, and nerve-racking experience! Well done, Morgan and TJ! Enjoy a successful Rocktoberfest! Props to The Barrel Room for supporting non-profits in a unique way!
