WORTHINGTON - A $2,365.72 check was presented Tuesday to the Worthington Fire Department in connection with last month’s Worthington’s Best Margarita pub crawl event.

Genell Hollahan and Jaime Salinas, organizers of the event, presented the donation to Worthington Fire Chief Rick von Holdt. The money came from Worthington’s Best Margarita proceeds and involved pub crawl participant fees and restaurant/bar participant fees. In all, more than 100 people sampled margaritas served by 11 Worthington bars and restaurants during the Aug. 19 event.  

At the end of the night, Lupita’s Mexican Restaurant was voted by pub crawl participants as serving Worthington's Best Margarita.  

"The event was a lot of fun from the planning stages all the way through the trophy presentation to Maria Parga at Lupita’s,” Salinas said. “On behalf of Genell Hollahan, I want to say thank you to everyone who participated and to the bars and restaurants who competed. Everyone really stepped up their margarita-making game from last year! We can’t wait for next year."

All donations from the event go toward the Worthington Firefighter Relief Association.
