Organizers said there will be a tip jar on each side of the bar. Each celebrity will compete to see who can get the most tips. All donations will go to East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.
“Should be a whole lot of fun and whenever we first got the email on who wants to be the celebrity bartender for this event, it was who am I going to have to go up against and I was just hoping it wasn’t going to be somebody that could kick me in the face, ” joked Trent Magill.
Trent Magill says he plans on making his drink weather themed. In addition to drinks, Echo is also offering bacon wrapped shrimp appetizers with half of the sales also donated to East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.
“I think children’s hospital is a great cause, having kids myself and hopefully never happens, but if it does they’re there,” said Bullman.
