From now until the end of May, Philadelphia restaurants and Bluecoat American Dry Gin are teaming up to raise money in the fight against Leukemia and Lymphoma.
Rex 1516, Jet Wine Bar, Devil's Den and Barren Hill are just a few of the restaurants participating -- each has come up with a special gin cocktail, and will donate 50 percent of the cocktail's sales to the Eastern PA chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The fundraiser will culminate with the LLS grand finale and Man & Woman of the Year awards at the Union League on June 12th.
