Cashflow Atlanta, Royal Flush Entertainment and Tree of Life Wine opened the holiday season in grand fashion with the first ever Serve The Public charity event at M Bar in Atlanta. The Toys For Tots benefit featured a round of celebrity bartenders giving “tips for tips” as they served up cocktails to and career advice to paying customers.
Patrons were treated to complementary Belvedere cocktails for bringing a toy to the event, while others enjoyed deeply discounted drinks throughout the night. Host Maurice Garland of Toasts & Tastes managed the night which definitely had a lot of excitement in the air. Bartenders Ebony Steele of the Rickey Smiley Morning Show and radio personality Mo Reilley started the evening pouring Tree of Wine in the front and back lounge areas.
Once their shift was over, DJ Trauma and photographer Ashley Reid kept the party going encouraging attendees to take shots (and more shots) with them. Things did not slow down with musicians Henry Conerway and Toni Redd serving stiff drinks as well. Producer Zaytoven and recording artist Lil Hot closed out the evening by turning it into a full scale party as they usually do whenever they enter a room.
With many highlights throughout the night, the brightest came with the reading of Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed’s official letter of endorsement supporting Serve the Public. Toasts & Tastes is also proud to announce that goals for the toy drive were exceeded. After a successful night, a second Serve the Public is already in the planning stages. Thank you to everyone who supported. If you missed this spectacular night, you can see what you missed in the photo gallery below or by visiting the Serve the Public Facebook page.
