When you purchase each subsequent drink, and return the used cup each time, you will be served your new drink in a fresh cup at no extra cost. The used cup will be washed/dried by us and returned to circulation. At the end of your evening, you can either (a) take your cup home as a souvenir, or (b) return it to the ‘Globelet Refund’ tent for a $1 refund, or (c) donate your cup return to our charity of choice, ‘Music Helps’ and we will give the $1 refund to them.
