CFHS invites public to imbibe for good cause

Chadds Ford Live's own Mark Trozzi will repeat his guest bartending stint at the BBC Tavern & Grill on Tuesday.

The Chadds Ford Historical Society is repeating its guest bartending fundraiser – an event that made a successful debut last year – at the BBC Tavern & Grill from 6 to 9 p.m.

The public is invited to join a host of enthusiastic guest bartenders, who will eagerly be collecting tips throughout the evening, 100 percent of which will go directly to the society. Checks made out to CFHS will be accepted for those who want a tax deduction. To make sure your favorite bartender gets credit, put their name in the check’s memo line. In addition, the BBC will donate 10 percent of the bill for those who stick around and have dinner.

This year’s event will feature a fun competition among the guest bartenders: house versus house. The proceeds raised will go toward the ongoing restoration and upkeep of the society’s two historic houses, the c. 1724 John Chads House and the c.1714 Barns-Brinton House.

Raffle items will range from Eagles tickets to local artwork to baskets of "cheer.” Among the guest bartenders will be George Washington (portrayed by Carl Closs). He will share duties with Beth Alois, Cheryl Baarsma, Mandy Brown, Colin Dyckman, Stewart Fiori, Randal Graham, Maggie Koncir, Steve Liberace, Sara Liberace, Deborah Love, Kendal Reynolds, Suzanne Schurr, Lise Taylor, Mark Trozzi, Nicki Wandersee and Ryan Wellcome.

Anyone unable to make the festivities who wants to support the effort can mail a check payable to the Chadds Ford Historical Society. The address is P.O. Box 27, Chadds Ford, Pa., 19317. You can also make a donation online here.

The BBC Tavern & Grill is located at 4019 Kennett Pike, Greenville, De., 19807. It shares a shopping center with the Wine & Spirit Company of Greenville, the UPS Store, and the Delaware Running Company.
