negroni week 2015Welcome to Negroni Week, presented by Imbibe Magazine and Campari. Negroni Week launched in 2013 as a celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails and an effort to raise money for charitable causes around the world. From 2013 to 2014, Negroni Week grew from more than 100 participating bars to more than 1,300 participating bars around the world and more than $120,000 raised for charities.

In 2015, Negroni Week took place from June 1-7, and more than 3,500 bars around the world mixed their favorite Negroni variations and donated a portion of proceeds from each one sold to a charity of their choice. Sign-ups for 2015 are closed, but save the date for 2016: Negroni Week will take place from June 6-12, so check back in March to sign up. In the meantime, click here to email us with any questions or ideas you have about getting involved. And keep tabs on the Negroni Week action on Imbibe’s Instagram and Twitter feeds (@imbibe) and by following the #NegroniWeek hashtag. And, of course, be sure to mix yourself a Negroni!


  • What are the dates of this year's Negroni Week?

    June 1-7, 2015.
  • How do I participate in Negroni Week as a bar or restaurant?

    Simply head to our sign-up page and fill out the sign-up form. Before filling out the form you'll need to choose the charity you'd like to donate to. We recommend donating at least $1 of each Negroni sale during Negroni Week, but you can donate more than that, of course. Once you fill out the form, we'll list you as a participating bar, and if you're planning to host a special event during Negroni Week, we'll gladly promote that as well. After Negroni Week has wrapped up, you'll need to let us know how much money you raised so that we can tally the donations of all participating bars. You are responsible for making the donation directly to the charity you've chosen.
  • Who makes the donations from participating bars after Negroni Week is over?

    Participating bars/restaurants are solely responsible for making donations to their chosen charities. Negroni Week donations are made directly by the participating bars/restaurants to their charity of choice.
  • How do I find out which bars are participating?

    Click on our Participating Bars link and you'll find a full list that's searchable by state and city.
  • I've heard about a $10,000 donation from Campari—what's that about?

    Yes, it's true! Last year, Campari committed to donating $10,000 to the charity chosen by the bar/restaurant that raised the most money during Negroni Week. In 2014, our top fundraiser was HG Sply Co. in Dallas, Texas. Their selected charity, Genesis Shelter, received the $10,000 donation from Campari on their behalf. Once again, Campari has committed to donating $10,000 to the charity chosen by the bar/restaurant that raises the most money during Negroni Week. Once Negroni Week has concluded, participating bars will receive a donation report to complete so that we can tally the total donations from all bars and determine which bar raised the most money during the week. We will contact that bar and request a proof of donation receipt and then coordinate the $10,000 donation to their chosen charity. In addition to the $10,000 charity donation for the bar that raises the most money, Imbibe will also be randomly selecting a participating bar to receive a $1,000 donation to their chosen charity. Any bar that participates during Negroni Week and completes and submits a donation form will be eligible for this, no matter how much their venue raised.
  • How does my bar/restaurant report the amount of money we raised during Negroni Week?

    Shortly after Negroni Week concludes you will receive a simple sales and donation form via email from Imbibe Magazine. This form must be returned to Imbibe no later than June 30, 2015. This information will be 100% confidential, and we will not publicize details about what you raised unless we have your permission to do so. Receiving this report from you will allow us to determine how much we all collectively raised during Negroni Week. It will also help us determine which bar has raised the most money during Negroni Week to qualify them for Campari’s $10,000 charity donation. Once we receive the donation reports, we will also be randomly selecting one participating bar to receive a $1,000 donation to their chosen charity.
