On Monday, January 25 from 7p-12a Biwa and Noraneko will be participating in a fundraiser hosted at Shift Drinks, and in collaboration with Multnomah Whiskey Library + others in our industry, to raise MONEY MONEY MONEY for Gabe and Kina's brother-in-law, Jason Carlisle.
Jason is truly fighting for his life and has been for years, battling Refractory Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia since 2011. After trying everything imaginable without success, Jason is now facing a bone marrow transplant and needs our help. As a longtime member of the Portland bar community, Jason is a daily inspiration to all of us and our hope is to put a crazy fun night together, complete with guest bartenders, great food, drink + music, all while raising as much money as possible to support Jason and his wife, Gabe's sister, Mack. So please mark your calendars, get ready to drink, eat and again, spend some $$$$!
The night of the event you’ll have a few ways you can donate. There will be a door donation when you hit the threshold of Shift Drinks, and you’ll get drinks tickets. You’ll go in, say hi to friends, make some new friends, drink tasty drinks and tip like a normal bar, but the tips aren’t actually tips, they're just more donations to the cause. After you toast to Jason, catch a buzz, raise a glass to your own health, which none of us should take for granted. You’ll be thankful you represented, and on the way out, there’ll be another donating opportunity.

See you all on the 25th!
