Uncle Nearest HBCU Old Fashioned Challenge. Help us raise $1 Million for Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
From January through March, in honor of MLK Jr. Day, Black History Month (BHM) and Women’s History Month (WHM), Uncle Nearest is partnering with bars & restaurants, stores, our eCommerce accounts and our Uncle Nearest #WhiskeyFamily to raise up to $1 Million for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). As reported by FORBES, CBS, PARENTS MAGAZINE, NPR, BLACK ENTERPRISE, TCF.org and dozens of other media outlets, HBCUs have been grossly underfunded by at least $12.8 billion over the past 30 years. Uncle Nearest, along with your help, will work to shine a light on this disparity in funding. But as with everything we do, we will not just talk about it, we will put our money where our mouth is, and pledge $1 for every Old Fashioned cocktail sold across the country beginning on MLK Jr. Day on January 16th and continuing through the end of Women’s History Month.
