Hampton Coffee Teams With Town To Highlight Local Teen Talent

Hampton Coffee Teams With Town To Highlight Local Teen Talent

Posted on June 05, 2016 to

Supporting local organizations is a top priority for us at Hampton Coffee Company, so we were proud to team-up with the Town of Southampton Youth Bureau for Teen Open Mic Night this past Friday, June 3.

“Hosting the Southampton Youth Bureau’s Open Mic Night at Hampton Coffee Company gives the local youth an opportunity to showcase their talents and get public performance experience in front of friends, family and peers,” said Peter Strecker, Neighborhood Aide and Event Coordinator for the Southampton Youth Bureau.

This is the second time this year that we helped to sponsor this community event, and this time we were excited to have the local social service organization The Retreat there with us. “The Retreat provides teen leadership and education programs in schools to teach awareness about abuse, open communication, on the effects of abuse in relationships and provide strategies for prevention and support,” said Community Outreach Coordinator for The Retreat, Selina Pasca. “We have worked with Hampton Coffee Company many times in the past to help educate the community about the services we provide and we both thought that having so many teens in a positive environment would be the ideal place to be on the sidelines to answer questions and handout information.”

Our Coffee Experience Store, located at 749 County Road 39A in Southampton, has proved to be the perfect place for the Youth Bureau’s Teen Open Mic Night and attracted student performers and audiences from across the town. The coffee bar features leather arm chairs, free Wi-Fi and an open city-style floor plan. This is all in addition to serving as our Coffee Roastery!

“We love working with the Southampton Youth Bureau for Teen Open Mic Night, and this time having The Retreat a part of the event made it even more valuable to our local teens,” said Hampton Coffee Company’s Edythe Collins, who coordinated the event, and herself is a recent Southampton High School alumnus.
