Pride Cocktail Crawl Fundraiser For Dr. Peter Aids Foundaion

Drink Up For Charity, Pride-Themed Cocktails Benefit the Dr. Peter Centre

Start celebrating as until August 6, dozens of bars and restaurants across Vancouver will shake up an array of signature cocktails in celebration of the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation. I’m feeling rather thirsty already! Scroll down for a cocktail recipe featuring Long Table Distillery from Justin Taylor of the Cascade Room.

Establishments will be offering Pride-themed cocktails with partial proceeds from the sale of each drink donated directly to the Dr. Peter Centre, a facility in Vancouver’s West End that provides services for British Columbians who face poverty, homelessness, mental illness, addictions and social isolation.

Dr. Peter

Whether shaken, stirred or served with a twist, each cocktail will not only generate much-needed funds for compassionate HIV care provided by the Dr. Peter Centre but will also raise awareness and champion the LGBTQ2+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Queer, Two-Spirited) community that comprises the majority of persons who receive care at the centre.
