Thank you for supporting Taste for a Cause! We had an awesome evening of tastings, auctions and fundraising. Over 350 people from across Denton County came out to Witherspoon Distillery on September 23rd to attend the SOLD OUT event of the season that raised over $75,000!
Live music from Bonnie and Nick Norris complimented the casual vibe of the event. In the rustic venue, guests casually perused silent auction items and bid on items straight from their phones. Everyone snacked on creative cuisine from Boca 31, Rachel's Riding Lawn Mower, Hannah's, Fresco's, Roma's Italian, and Prohibition Chicken while listening to music and tasting delicious mixed drinks made with whiskey and vodka distilled by Witherspoon. The best drink of all was the Impact Maker! Made by Witherspoon specifically for Taste for a Cause, the impact maker had hints of blueberry, lemonade, and hibiscus.
VIP guests had exclusive access to the barrel room, where they had an open bar and poker tables!
Connected to the barrel room was the distillery room, where all guests could get a fun tour with information about how the whiskey is distilled. Lining the walls of this room were silent witnesses with stories of victims of domestic violence in Texas who have been murdered by their partners. They stood as a powerful reminder of the importance of the work that we do at Friends of the Family.
The program featured an inspiring video of our clients with how Denton County Friends of the Family impacted their life. We are so grateful for the support the community provided at this year's event and inspired by the courageous women who shared their story.
We were able to raise $75,000 to support victims of sexual and domestic violence right here in our community. Thank you for investing in safety, hope, healing, justice, and prevention for victims of sexual and domestic violence.
