By Jim Boyce | Maovember 2016 kicked off its annual campaign on Friday at XL Restaurant & Bar, then followed it up by spending the weekend at The Beijinger Pizza Cup. The launch party raised money via darts, picklebacks and Maovember pin sales, with more than 100 of the latter sold, including to venue partners Cafe de la Poste, Punjabi, Beer Mania, Home Plate Barbecue, Paddy O’Shea’s, CHEERS and The Irish Volunteer. The focus then shifted to the Pizza Cup and raising funds via beer and corn toss, with brews donated by Kentucky Ale, prizes by CHEERS and the booth by The Beijinger.
Here’s a collage of some pin buyers during the first days of the Maovember 2016 campaign.
