Fadò Irish Pub is Drinking Irish Coffee to Support the St. Baldrick’s Foundation

From Jan. 20-25, Fadò will donate $1 to support childhood cancer research for every Irish coffee sold

Atlanta, GA (January 19, 2018) On Jan. 20, Fadò Irish Pubs will kick off the fundraising season with a five-day campaign of drinking Irish coffee and raising awareness about the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants. From Jan. 20-25, for every Irish coffee sold, $1 will be donated to St. Baldrick’s to fund the most promising childhood cancer research. In addition, during the same dates, if Fadò customers post a picture of their Irish coffee on Instagram with the hashtag #FuelACure2018, Fadò will donate another $1.

As St. Baldrick’s signature head-shaving events are confirmed and shavees begin the rally for donations, Fadò, which hosts multiple St. Baldrick’s head-shaving events throughout March, will use National Irish Coffee Day on Jan. 25, to highlight the start of the St. Patrick’s Day season. Hundreds of volunteers will go bald at these events to stand in solidarity with kids with cancer and raise money for lifesaving research.

Last year, Fadó Irish Pubs celebrated a significant milestone of more than $10 million raised for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. For 16 years – since the first event in Chicago on St. Patrick’s Day – Fadó Irish Pubs have organized more than 130 head-shaving events with more than 8,700 bald heads. The pubs hold a record within the Foundation among participating restaurants, having raised the most of any other chain involved.
