Lynn Lester, owner of The Brick Hotel in Georgetown, says she wishes she could donate to every single entity that comes through her door. But that just hasn't been possible, so Lester came up with a creative way to give back to the community.

At The Brick, March of each year is designated as Charity Bartending Month. The Brick opens its doors to organizations, individual causes and more who want to raise funds.

"This is our fourth year, and we love having new and/or different organizations participate - it's truly a win-win for all involved," says Lester. Organizations bring in a guest bartender who works alongside Lester's' staff taking care of the customers. All the organization has to do is to share the event with its supporters and followers. The Brick donates $1 for every drink sold, along with a large percentage of the tips generated.

Charity Bartending Nights are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays throughout the month of March from 6 to 9 p.m., and some dates are still available. To receive more information, contact Lester via email at

The Brick Hotel is on The Circle in Georgetown, and serves lunch and dinner 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
