2019 Charity Guest Bartending Competition

“It’s amazing how much you can get accomplished when you don’t care who gets credit for it,” as quoted from Mr. Ted Bauer’s opening speech as he announced the winner for the 2019 Charity Guest Bartending Competition at The Valley Inn. 

The Valley Inn extends its heartfelt gratitude to everyone who came out to “drink and dine” to support various charities on Wednesdays throughout the summer. It was fun, but also filled with memorable events to help causes close to our hearts. Everyone’s presence shows the warmth and caring towards these deserving Charities, and the friendly competitive spirit added to the enjoyment. It’s the spirit of serving and making a difference that made the Summer of 2019 a success. At the end of the day we are not measured for what we have but we are measured for what we give. 

We thankfully acknowledge the participation of the participating Charities: The Family Tree, Cool Kids, One Love, The Living Classrooms, Kennedy Krieger, Catch a Lift Fund, Irvine Nature Center, Md Historical Society, Irish Charities and US Lacrosse.

It was indeed a close competition and this year’s 1st place winner was One Love! Kennedy Krieger and Irvine Nature Center were the runners up.In all, The Valley Inn donated $7,500 to the 10 competing charities.

Congratulations to the winners and to all the participants!
