On Saturday, March 1 and every Saturday through May 3, Reno Pinocchio bartender Jillian Pinocchio is stepping aside and Celebrity Bartenders are going to work for tips, all for a good cause, Moms on the Run.
“I have been serving most of our Celebrity Bartenders for years, it is going to feel good to put them behind the bar and have them hustle for tips to help raise money for Moms on the Run,” Jillian Pinocchio said.
All tips earned by the Celebrity Bartenders will go directly to Moms on the Run which provides financial assistance directly to women who are undergoing cancer treatment to help pay for everyday needs. Jim Bauserman of Bauserman Group, Jim Minor of the Minor Group and Pete Ernaut from R&R Partners are the first group of Celebrity Bartenders to compete for the most tips on Saturday, March 1.
Moms on the Run, a local non-profit run by volunteers, provides financial assistance directly to women to pay for everyday needs while undergoing cancer treatment. All donations stay in Northern Nevada, helping Northern Nevada families suffering from the financial strain of a cancer diagnosis. More than 98 cents for every dollar raised and donated to Moms on the Run go directly to those in need.

March 1 – Jim Bauserman, Pete Ernaut and Jim Minor
