A Holly, Jolly Good Effort

As previously reported, our friends at 5801 Video Lounge & Cafe turned their extravagant holiday pop-up bar into a way to do some good in the neighborhood with The First Noëllsworth charity event.

Throughout the month of December, 5801 was able to raise nearly $7,400 with another $2,000 coming from their partner, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, bringing them just shy of their $10,000 goal. The proceeds will benefit the Humane Animal Rescue of Pittsburgh, the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, and the Hugh Lane Wellness Foundation.

5801 would like to thank all the staff and volunteers who helped with the decorating, baking, and drink-making that made Noëllsworth a success. While it is sad to see the holiday season come to an end, the team at 5801 is already planning next year’s event and looking forward to more opportunities to make a positive impact in the community.

And, of course, thanks to everyone who purchased some cookies or cocktails during The First Noëllsworth charity event. Your generosity is much appreciated!
