Cocktails for a Cause™ empowers women by providing resources and hope to serve the needs of our local community, by bringing women together for a fun event that creates an immediate impact on a local charity.

Be a CFAC Charity

Cocktails for a Cause™ is not affiliated with any corporation or charitable organization. Our purpose is to raise “products” for local charities that have an immediate impact on the persons in need.

Events

Come to one of our fun networking events! We meet three times a year to share great food, wine, friendship and our donations for a worthy local charity.
