STAP's RockStar Celebrity Bartending Bash is just one week away!

The S.T.A.P. RockStar Celebrity Bartending Bash is less than a week away, and once again promises to be the "funnest" event of the year, says STAP Director Mary Kaminsky.

The Southern Tier Aids Program is throwing their fundraising extravaganza The STAP Rockstar Celebrity Bartending Bash on Sunday, April 14th, from 4pm to 7pm at Remlik's Grille & Oyster Bar, 31 Lewis St, Binghamton.

This popular fundraising event is always well attended and last year they reached $12,000 in tips in 3 hours, helping to support the ongoing fight against Auto-Immune Deficiency Syndrom, known as A.I.D.S., of which's story was adapted into a world-famous musical in RENT.

S.T.A.P. has pulled in as much as $20,000 in the past, and hope to break that record with your help while attending a wonderful, fun-loving, entertaining, and awarding event for anyone's good soul. You can tip the bartenders anytime, as they vie for the title Top Startender 2019!

Performances take place every half hour, and will include your bartenders and these lovely entertainers:
Dusty Boxx
Monroe Sedgwick
Virginia Ham
Peaches Eclair
Steve Nanni

Your bartenders for the year come in 3 rounds as noted:

The bartenders are all vying in a "friendly competition to win the title of Top Startender 2019", said Kaminsky. All Tips go to S.T.A.P.

STAP Director Mary Kaminsky said, "It is the funnest event of the year, very fun, and it's always a win-win situation."

There is no entry fee to the event. Anyone who requires, or desires an Uber ride home will get one free of charge. Safety first!

A.I.D.S., Auto-Immune Deficiency Syndrome became an epidemic in 

1981
The first cases of what would later become known as AIDS were reported in the United States in June of1981. Today, there are more than 1.1 million people living with HIV and more than 700,000 people with AIDS have died since the beginning of the epidemic.Mar 25, 2019 (Courtesy of https://www.kff.org/hivaids/fact-sheet/the-hivaids-epidemic-in-the-united-states-the-basics/)

Many of us watched our friends and co-workers fall one by one. Today, less than 7,000 people have A.I.D.S., reflective of the hard work scientists and groups such as S.T.A.P. have put in over the decades to end this horrible disease, which knows no limit to who it has infected over the years. Thankfully, most people are living and surviving with A.I.D.S,. now.
