Barbara VanKirk, President and Owner of IQ Inc. a technical consulting and software development company located in Murrysville, Pennsylvania, was a guest bartender at the Airport Area Chamber of Commerce’s Mixers with Shakers annual fundraiser.
The Mixers with Shakers event features local business celebrities and CEO’s who appear as “guest bartenders” for the evening to help raise money for their favorite charities. Along with Barbara VanKirk other guest bartenders included former Pittsburgh Steeler LC Greenwood, WTAE News Anchor/Reporter Janelle Hall and other Pittsburgh area celebrities.
IQ Inc. selected the Sunny Carney Carcinoid Cancer Fund as their charity for the event. The goal of the Sunny Carney Carcinoid Foundation is to raise $100,000 for Sunny Carney’s treatment of carcinoid cancer which she will undergo in Basel, Switzerland. Doctors in the United States cannot effectively treat the rare carcinoid cancer long term; this treatment is the only option for Sunny and her family. With the help of friends, family and the local community IQ Inc. was able to donate over $2,000 to assist the foundation.
