Negroni Week will be running from the 5th to the 11th of June! Now in its fifth year, the week-long international charity initiative will take place next week, with bars, clubs and restaurants from across Australia and the world coming together over the classic Negroni cocktail – a mix of Campari, gin and red vermouth – to raise money and awareness for great causes and charities. Yes, that’s right, charitable drinking!
Negroni Week launched in 2013 and from 2013 to 2016, Negroni Week grew from about 100 participating venues to 6,000 venues around the world, and to date, nearly $900,000 has collectively been raised for charitable causes.
