HOBNOB hosts generous pours in May and June to benefit Operation New Uniform

By May 2, 2017CFM News

HOBNOB, Jacksonville’s playfully sophisticated food and social exchange, will be raising money for Operation New Uniform throughout the months of May and June. The generous pours program will kick off for the nonprofit on Wednesday, May 3 with a special happy hour. From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., 10 percent of the sales at HOBNOB will go to Operation New Uniform.

“We invite everyone to come join us for happy hour on May 3 or stop by any time between May and June to help raise money for this great cause,” said Ellen Cottrill, owner of HOBNOB. “We have created a specialty cocktail called the Brooklyn Radler for the nonprofit, which we are selling for the next two months. A portion of the cost of every drink we sell will go to Operation New Uniform.”

The Brooklyn Radler is a citrus-inspired beer cocktail. Throughout the month of May and June, for every Brooklyn Radler that is sold, HOBNOB will donate 25 percent to Operation New Uniform. The Generous Pours program was created to bring awareness and financial support to nonprofit organizations in the community. Every two months, the restaurant introduces a new cocktail to benefit a local charity.

Operation New Uniform is a nonprofit organization that trains veterans and their families for fulfilling careers outside of the military. Through their two programs, Finding the Uniform and Enhancing the Uniform, they offer training and development, resources and professional networks for the professional success of the veterans they serve.
