Inaugural Bourbon for Booty to Benefit 24 Foundation – Sept. 14

8/9/17

An exceptional evening of curated bourbons and whiskeys is coming this fall while supporting the local cancer community. The inaugural Bourbon for Booty will take place on Thursday, Sept. 14 at 7PM at Hart Witzen Gallery, 136 E. 36th Street, in Charlotte.

Created and hosted by 24 Foundation Founder, Spencer Lueders, Bourbon for Booty supports and celebrates the contemporary, new branding and refocused purpose of 24 Foundation – a Charlotte nonprofit with a mission to inspire and engage communities to make an immediate impact on the lives of people affected by cancer. 24 Foundation hosted its signature fundraiser – the 16th Annual 24 Hours of Booty charity non-competitive cycling and walking event – on July 28-29, 2017 in Charlotte, raising more than $1.7 million.

“Whether you are new to bourbons and whiskeys or an experienced collector, Bourbon for Booty is an exclusive, must-do event benefiting our local cancer community,” said Lueders. “We look forward to bringing folks together for a fun evening with fine spirits and great food, while supporting an important cause.”

As part of the tasting, guests will also enjoy light food pairings and palate cleansers prepared by renowned local chef, Craig Barbour. The first 100 registrants will receive a custom tasting glass, and all guests will receive a notebook and education about each spirit before individual pours and sampling guidance.

Tickets are $100 and spots are limited to just 200 guests. Wingman tickets (for non-drinking companion; must be purchased with other tickets) are available for $60. Purchase tickets at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/bourbon-for-booty-tickets-31880071151. For additional information, email Spencer Lueders at spencer@24foundation.org.

For those seeking the ultimate VIP experience, Bourbon for Booty has secured a bottle of one of the most sought-after labels in Kentucky bourbon whiskey: Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 20 Year Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Only 20 tickets are available for this special tasting with Lueders, award-winning Charlotte distiller Ollie Mulligan, and other guests and VIPs. Tickets for the Pappy VIP Experience are an additional $100 and can be purchased at www.bourbonforbooty.com.

“We’re very excited for Bourbon for Booty and appreciate Spencer [Lueders] for organizing this fantastic event, which is sure to become a great annual tradition,” said Mallory Walsh, executive director of 24 Foundation. “Fundraisers such as this are vital to our mission and help change the course of cancer navigation and survivorship.”
