FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Thank You for Warming Up Your Winter With Us! Alzheimer Society Waterloo Wellington’s 9th Annual Winter Warmer is Huge Success!
Waterloo Wellington, ON – March 28, 2017: On March 23rd 2017, over 120 guests attended the 9th Annual Winter Warmer, presented by Audi Kitchener-Waterloo, co-hosted by Beam Suntory, for the benefit of Alzheimer Society Waterloo Wellington at The Tannery, (121 Charles Street West Kitchener, ON N2G 1H7).
The event was a debate style format, with International Ambassadors debating different whisk(e)ys. Guests tasted 7 different whisk(e)ys, from varying locations in Canada, the US, Scotland and Japan. A tie was voted upon by guests, between American Bourbon and Scotch Whiskey! Guests enjoyed appetizers, a live and silent auction, as well as chatting with the Ambassadors and experts.
This year’s Winter Warmer – the Great Whisk(e)y Debate raised over $20,000.00 for Alzheimer Society Waterloo Wellington – the highest amount ever raised for this event, our community helped us shatter our fundraising goal!
“This event was our best-ever. Not only did we raise a fantastic amount of funds for our Society, but everyone who attended had a fabulous time!” says Michelle Martin, Executive Director of Alzheimer Society Waterloo Wellington. “We hope that everyone saves the date for next year’s 10th Annual Event – the Winter Warmer Prohibition Party on March 24th 2018!”
