Last year, Milwaukee’s Best Bloody sold out with 785 people in attendance, breaking the world record for the largest Bloody Mary toast! This year, we have moved to a larger venue that can accommodate 1,000 people. Milwaukee’s Best Bloody has become a premier event in the Milwaukee area that has helped raise a tremendous amount of awareness about GLHF’s mission to educate, support and advocate for the bleeding disorders community – including what it’s like for children, adults and families to live with this chronic disease. This year, we will host 15-20 unique Bloody Marys from local bars and restaurants. Milwaukee bartenders will showcase their signature Bloody Mary recipes while competing for the title of “Milwaukee’s Best Bloody” in a friendly competition. Guests will enjoy appetizers, taste Bloody Marys and vote for a winner in categories including Best Overall, Most Milwaukee, Most Like a Meal and Most Inventive. Last year premier winner was Pepi’s Pub and Grill won for Best Overall Bloody Mary. We hope that you will help us raise awareness for the bleeding disorders community by featuring our event! Thank you for your time and consideration! Sincerely, Danielle Lennie Communications Specialist Great Lakes Hemophilia Foundation 414-937-6786 Find us on Facebook Follow us on Twitter
