A LUPEC + USBG Marathon Fundraiser

This May drinking establishments from Boston, Cambridge, and beyond will partner together for DrinkOne, a month-long, city-wide drink promotion. ALL profits of sales of DrinkOne drinks will be donated those affected by the tragic bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon April 15, 2013.

DrinkOne will allow Boston-area bartenders to show their support the best way they know how: by serving delicious drinks and donating all proceeds from their sales to victims of the Marathon bombings.

DrinkOne will be punctuated by a series of events to include a bar crawl, where guests will “race” from bar to bar to sample DrinkOne drinks while sporting specially made “running” shirts, arriving at a celebratory bash to mark the end of the promotion (venue TBD.)

The closing bash also a fundraiser, will feature a fabulous prize raffle, and silent auction. The total dollar amount raised during the course of the month at the closing party.


It’s easy to participate: simply designate a drink of your choosing, either newly added or an old faithful, as your DrinkOne cocktail. Proceeds from sales of that drink through May 31st will support those affected by the Marathon Bombings.

Stay tuned for a list of venues where you can drink for a cause this May!

DrinkOne will collect all donations through gofundme.com or via check written directly to the USBG Boston. Once the promotion is complete, DrinkOne will announce the dollar amount of funds raised, which will then be allocated as follows:

  • To support members of the service industry affected by the Marathon bombings

  • To support families affected by the Marathon bombings
