Signature Drink Competition
VOTING OPEN AUGUST 7TH - 21ST
2023 FAN FAVORITE
The theme of the 2023 ACS Gala of Hope is UnMasking the Future! The gala event committee chose to invite local restaurants to compete for the honor of creating the 2023 Gala's Signature Drink to be featured at the Gala being held on November 4th at the historic Read House.
The Signature Drink has been a long-standing tradition of the Gala of Hope and this unique cocktail has been a crowd-pleaser that raises additional funds for local cancer programs.
Six local restaurants agreed to participate. Not only did every bartender bring their A game, they surprised our judges with their creativity and heart-warming inspiration.
You can participate in choosing this year's Signature Drink by voting for your favorite! All six cocktails are presented below. You can vote for your favorite with a $10 donation and voting is unlimited! On August 23, 2023, the Signature Drink winner will be announced!
