FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) — A holiday pop-up bar located on the Fayetteville square has raised over $30,000 for local non-profit organizations this holiday season.
Hannah Withers of Holidaze, the establishment responsible for turning the space at 18 E. Center St into a temporary Christmas wonderland, announced the successful fundraiser on her Facebook page.
“We had no idea what a hit this was going to be,” Withers said. “We had moments where we definitely could have used a bigger space, but the level of cheer we felt in that space was different than anything we’ve ever done. We had a lot of people thank us for helping them get in the spirit.”
The establishment ran a host of fundraisers during their time including an egg nog making competition, a record night, and an Elvis cover brand.
Withers, along with others, hope to recreate the successful event again next year.
