Buckeye Vodka Serves Ohio’s Bartenders in Need Through Charitable Efforts
(April, 2020) - Buckeye Vodka, an affordable, Ohio-made premium vodka, has launched a cause campaign to bring relief to Ohio’s bartenders affected by the aftermath of America’s health crisis, COVID-19. In an effort to raise awareness about the needs of those recently out of work throughout the state, Buckeye Vodka will call upon the local community members and professional bartenders alike to engage with the brand. With the close of the campaign, the brand will have awarded five winning bartenders cash prizes and three Ohio consumers Buckeye Vodka merchandise.
In the month of April, professional bartenders will be asked to submit their mixology videos, including Buckeye Vodka, for an opportunity to win cash prizes and much needed financial support. Fans will also have the opportunity to win one three loaded gift baskets by submitting their own amateur Buckeye Vodka mixology videos. Additionally, consumers who comment on the bartender videos will also help to raise additionalcash for the prize pool, as Buckeye Vodka, partnered with Sculpture Hospitality (formerly known as Bevinco), will donate an additional one dollar for each engagement, up to $3,000.
"The Buckeye state has been hit hard, and our bartenders are one of the groups that has been hit the hardest, and earliest," shares Jim Finke, Co-Founder of Buckeye Vodka. "Our hearts go out to them, and we want to help. We're hoping this campaign will provide a much needed creative outlet for Ohioans at home, fill the winners' pockets with some much needed cash, and turn up the awareness of the need, overall."
As Buckeye Vodka perceives it, the “Spirit of Ohio” is really a mindset – a sense of rock-solid determination in the face of adversity. As proof of Buckeye Vodka’s desire to help in the most challenging of times, in 2008 and 2009, amidst the worst economy since the Great Depression, the Buckeye Vodka brand sought to be part of the solution and was brought to market. It’s a brand that is committed to making a difference by investing locally to make a positive contribution to the local, state and national economy.
