If you love classic cocktails, then this is the week for you! Started in 2013, Negroni Week is a time when restaurants and bars, led by Campari and Imbibe, come together to support great causes and charities.
The Negroni is an elegantly simple drink, with just three ingredients required – gin, Campari, and vermouth. These requirements are just the beginning, and many creative bartenders have produced dozens (maybe hundreds) of recipes.
Water For People
This year, Southpark Seafood is joining the festivities, and we’re proud to be supporting Water for People. We chose this organization because they’re filling a gap in the world that is so easy to forget.
Living in the luxury of the United States, sometimes it can be difficult to imagine that around the world, there are still 1.8 billion people who don’t have access to clean drinking water, and 2.4 billion people who don’t have access to any real form of sanitation. Some of these people drink from the same streams they use as latrines, and they drink this murky water the same way you or I would drink crystal clear tap water.
We’ve chosen to support a charity that helps people with the most basic possible need. Without water, nothing else matters—not even food.
Water for People is working to change that. As they say on their site, “…it’s not just about building wells, installing toilets, and setting up pumps, but about creating long-term, sustainable change.” We love supporting a cause like this because what they do doesn’t just affect the people they directly help, it also affects future generations. This is an investment that lasts. The wells they build and the training they provide give life and hope for decades and hopefully centuries after the workers and construction equipment are gone.
We’d love to have you join us this week to enjoy tasty drinks and support a great cause that will help billions of people around the world.
