    Merit TNT In Partnership With Big Brothers Big Sisters

    posted by Paige Geffken

    The one year anniversary party of TNT SATX was a success in more ways than one. Most notably, our coffee community raisedover $1000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Texas. Of the 400 attendees, 64 baristas competed in a head-to-head latte art competition with one of our very own coming out on top! The event was made possible with the help of many sponsors, helpful hands, and people who are passionate about BBBS. We are proud to announce that we had 18 people sign up to receive more information about becoming a "Big" after hearing the testimony of a local "Little." 

    Event held in partnership with sponsors: Hilmy ProductionsMill- King Market and CreameryJôntMod Bar and The Historic Pearl. Musical entertainment from DJ JJ Lopez sponsored by La Marzocco, special guest speaker from Big Brothers Big Sisters. Ten Thousand Villages, located at The Historic Pearl, sponsored "Shop For A Cause" from 3pm-6pm before the event in their store. 15% of all purchases during this time were gifted to Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Texas, resulting in a $150 gift to the organization.
