For the second time yesterday, Cocktails For Hope was on TV discussing our movement.
An amazing job by Julia Momose talking about our cause.
She provided a great explanation of our movement and why it is necessary to the survival of the hospitality industry, this is a must watch!
Also, we need your support, contact your legislators and let them know you want to help the hospitality industry.
Cocktails For Hope wants to thank Senator Sara Feigenholtz and Representative Kelly Cassidy for their public statements of support.
Representative Cassidy stated:
“Cocktails for Hope is a pretty simple way for us to provide support for the businesses that make our neighborhoods what they are. We know recovery for many of these community institutions gets more challenging with every day they can’t operate in their traditional ways. This isn’t about making it easier to get your drink on, it’s about making sure that the businesses that employ our neighbors, feed our community and hold space for neighbors to connect will still be there when we come out the other end of this crisis.”
“Lawmakers are working together to provide our local independent restaurants every possible lever and tool to keep their doors open to curbside pickup and delivery during this pandemic. No single industry has been hit harder than the hospitality sector.
“Permitting this industry to creatively and safely package their menu items while preserving safety is very doable. We just have to have the will to do it, and we must act quickly.
“Every day that passes, a door of one of these establishments are quietly closing. We have to do everything we can to keep them alive because they are the heart and soul of our communities.”
