Gaelan is donating all of his tips from the event to Safe Bars RVA, a DC-based program that trains hospitality staff and management to identify and handle sexual aggression, harassment, and assault specifically in places where alcohol is served. They partnered with YWCA Richmond, Hanover Safe Space, and USBG Richmond to create the Richmond chapter. Gaelan says this cause is very important to him as a manager with a strong female presence among his core staff. Virago Spirits will be matching his tips 100% to double the donation.
