U.G.L.Y. Bartender of the Year Campaign 2015
Hoshizaki Lancer are the proud Principal Sponsor for the 2015 Leukaemia Foundation's U.G.L.Y. Bartender of the Year competition.
What does U.G.L.Y. stand for?
The acronym stands for Understanding, Generous, Likeable, You - so don't be misled by the title! The U.G.L.Y. Bartender fundraiser competition is an annual campaign that raises money to fund blood cancer research and support patients and their families affected by leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma diagnosis.
What is the campaign all about?
U.G.L.Y. Bartender of the Year is an invaluable campaign that allows bartenders to have fun and build more meaningful relationships with customers and colleagues while raising awareness and funds for The Leukaemia Foundation.
During the 2014 campaign, $1.3 million was raised to help Australian families impacted by blood cancer, just by taking part in the fundraiser. We mean business!
This competition also has major significance to Hoshizaki Lancer, as in April of 2012 we farewelled our New Zealand Manager – Michael Abraham – who lost his battle with cancer. The inaugural Michael Abraham Memorial Trophy is awarded to the highest overall fundraiser of the competition, who this last year was Belinda Marshall from NT. We wish to congratulate Belinda on a truly outstanding effort for this competition.
What prizes are involved?
As a principal sponsor of the U.G.L.Y. competition, we are delighted to award each of the winners' venues with one of our Hoshizaki ice machines worth $7,500 or Lancer Beverage Systems products and services to the value of $7,500!
There is also plenty of other items up for grabs, in previous years holidays, TV's, vouchers - you name it.
