How to be U.G.L.Y.

Raising money in your venue is an extraordinary way to help people with blood cancer

How you raise the cash is up to you

Create events, fundraisers, games and experiences that your patrons will embrace.


Think of U.G.L.Y. Bartender of the Year as a great way to get people to your venue and have a good time whilst raising money to help beat blood cancer.


Winning U.G.L.Y. Bartenders come up with unique and original ways to raise money and pump up the fun-factor in their venue. 


Then get creative with car washes, quiz nights, cocktail classes and other events.


So get started. Pop your U.G.L.Y. donation tins on the bar, try a few simple games and hold a raffle or two to kick start your U.G.L.Y.-ness, and contact us if you'd like help planning your fundraising strategies!
