Local bar-industry fixtures Tim Russell and Lucky “The Painproof Man” Munro join forces on Sun., Sept. 24, to raise funds for hurricane relief efforts in the U. S. Virgin Islands. Russell, the owner and distiller at Maggie’s Farm Rum, and Munro, who runs a tiki pop-up series called Cane & Grog, both feel that the Caribbean and its people have had profound effects on their lives and their careers.
The fundraiser will be held at Maggie’s Farm Distillery and will include a special tiki menu presented by Munro as a part of his Cane & Grog series. Black Sheep Barbecue will be serving up Caribbean-style barbecue with food donated by Black Sheep and Penn Macaroni Company.
Hundred percent of the profits from the evening will go directly to the hurricane-relief effort, some of them to a relief charity set up by Tim Duncan, a retired NBA player from St. Croix, who has pledged to match any donations up to a million dollars. Can’t make it out on Sunday? No worries, one dollar for every drink purchased from Maggie’s Farm this week will be donated as well.
