LUPEC Seattle Dismantling the Patriarchy…one drink at a time!

Ladies for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails, Seattle Edition!
We try to meet up once a month in the area's best cocktail bars to try tasty libations made of gin, rum, tequila, whiskey, etc.
Occasionally we throw a party and use our power to raise money for local charities.

Follow the fun!

As you know, LUPEC isn't just about lovely gatherings and well made cocktails. We are also an organization that nationwide strives to help our communities by getting involved in charitable organizations and events. Sometimes we hold them ourselves. This time we got involved in the Eat.Run.Hope Food and 5K put on by Ethan and Angela Stowell to benefit the Fetal Hope Foundation.

What a great event this was! A clear and crisp morning was perfect for the 5K (we walked) around Seward Park. Good thing we worked up an appetite because there was a whole tent full of delicious food from area restaurants to be had after!

LUPEC Seattle had a goal of $500 to raise for the cause and as of today (donations have still been coming in!) we've raised $1,825!!!! I couldn't be more proud!

I want to thank the ladies who walked (and ran) with me: Sonja G, Danielle F, Jan L, Tracy M, Stevi D.

I also want to give a special shout out to Stevi and Tracy who went above and beyond and raised money on behalf of the cause.

And of course all of the ladies who donated to help us reach our goal: Danielle F, Jan L, Jen B, Lynn & Chelley, Carolyn R, Elisabeth K, Katarina K, Brook H, Lauren E, Sonja G, Elaine S, Leslie S, Valentina V, Leslie D, Sandra S, Julie B.

And of course thank you to those who aren't a member of LUPEC but who supported us with donations also!

We'll be doing this again next year!
