Café Medina is proud to pledge our support to the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation this July and August by taking part in the inaugural Pride Crawl Fundraiser to generate financial support for the Dr. Peter Centre in the city’s West End.
From July 14 through August 6, a number of Vancouver establishments, including Café Medina, will offer signature Pride-themed cocktails with partial proceeds to directly benefit the Dr. Peter Centre, which provides compassionate HIV care for British Columbians who face poverty, homelessness, mental illness, addictions and social isolation in addition to HIV.
Our Pride Crawl Cocktail is the ‘Ipanema,’ created by bartender Thiago Alves. This fresh and floral drink is made with cachaca, cointreau, lime, egg white, mint, rosewater and chili. $4 from every Ipanema cocktail sold during the fundraiser will be donated to the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation.
Beyond raising funds for the Dr. Peter Centre, the Pride Crawl Fundraiser also aims to raise awareness of HIV and show support for the LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Queer, Two-Spirited) community, which comprises the majority of persons who receive care at the Dr. Peter Centre.
