John Heckathorn Memorial Cocktail Fundraiser

Drink some of John Heckathorn's favorite cocktails (Old Fashioned, Manhattan and Smile) at a memorial fundraiser this Sunday. Cocktail sales, tips and silent auction proceeds will be donated to a scholarship fund* in John's name at Hawaii Pacific University, where he joined the faculty as an assistant professor in the fall.

Some of the bartenders participating:
- Dave Newman - Nobu
- Kyle Reutner - Town
- Roxanne Siebert - The Standard
- Jonathan Schwalbenitz - Murphy's
- Christian Self - 39Hotel
- Tim Rita - The Modern

Sunday, April 15, 6 to 11:30 p.m. at Apartment3

[*Editor's note 4/13: On the scholarship: This event is coordinated by the Hawaii chapter of the US Bartender's Guild (USBG). Dave Newman, president of the Hawaii chapter, says "We hope to raise $10,000 (the minimum threshold to establish a named scholarship) for an HPU scholarship in John's name through a series of events. Ultimately, however, this event is held to celebrate John's life. Donations, even if they fall short of the goal, will be given to HPU's journalism department."]
