May 29, 2018 – Campari Italy’s famous red aperitivo, joins forces once again with Imbibe Magazine for the sixth annual Negroni Week June 4 – 10, 2018. Bars, restaurants and retailers around the world will come together over the classic Negroni – an iconic mix of equal parts Campari, gin and sweet vermouth – to raise money and awareness for charitable causes.
Starting with just 100 participating bars in 2013, last year’s Negroni Week welcomed the involvement of 7,770 partners in 60 countries to raise an amazing $1.5 million for charitable causes since the initiative’s launch.
New this year, Campari will be working with the United States Bartenders’ Guild (USBG) National Charity Foundation to host its first-ever Campari Community Service Day. On June 5 in over 20 cities across the U.S., bartenders and Campari employees in their respective cities will gather for activities such as volunteering at local animal shelters, organizing beach clean ups and preparing and delivering meals to local charities, community groups and firehouses, feeding the people who are making a positive impact in their local communities.
