About Speed Rack
Speed Rack is a competition created for and by female bartenders to promote female bartenders. And, while we're at it, we're going to raise some money to fight breast cancer. All proceeds from the event will go to breast cancer education, prevention and research.
Conceived by Ivy Mix and Lynnette Marrero of LUPEC NYC, produced by Lush Life Productions, and coordinated by Claire Bertin-Lang of Proof ABV, Speed Rack aims to promote women from coast-to-coast in an engaging, fun and fast way through a round robin style speed competition.
