What started as a small effort from Kate and the Juniper team has now grown exponentially to involve over forty bars, restaurants, and cafés statewide. Kate’s outreach to friends throughout the industry has extended outside of Burlington, stretching from Stowe to Greensboro and White River Junction. The overwhelming support in participating in the campaign has created movement at the state level. As the kickstarter restaurants, Juniper Bar & Restaurant and Bleu Northeast Kitchen will continue to support the initiative and have agreed to match donations. The end goal from these efforts, you ask? To use the platform that bartenders, servers, and owners have to increase awareness and fund local nonprofits that do so much for our community.
You, a consumer of beverages, play an incredibly valuable role in this initiative. Here’s how you can help.
