The group is asking every bar, every nightclub and every restaurant that serves alcoholic beverages to get behind this event and make it one that we will never forget. Each business will receive posters and tickets to distribute to customers. A door prize of $1,000 will be awarded to one customer, and another $1,000 to the bar that provided the ticket to that customer.
The Freedom Fest will include bands, drink specials, door prizes, silent auction and local celebrities. Steepleton's has already donated a regulation size pool table, and many other prizes will be awarded by many other local businesses.
All proceeds will go to the Metro Louisville Hospitality Coalition's work in protecting local bars and nightclubs, and their customers, from legislation that could harm local businesses and Louisville nightlife opportunities.
Bar and Restaurant Owners: We need your donations and door prizes. Call John Dant at 931-6979.
