On World Beads of Courage Day, September 15, we had great fun hosting a virtual Cocktails for Courage event, presented by Heritage Distilling Company and benefiting Beads of Courage. It was a wonderful hour with Justin Stiefel, CEO and co-founder of Heritage, and BOC supporters from coast to coast raising a toast to our mission.
Cocktails for Courage events began in 2019 and were held in person, but COVID-19 prompted the change to a virtual format this year. Prior to the event, guests were mailed a package full of goodies from Heritage Distilling and Beads of Courage.
Throughout the hour, Justin told guests about the spirits they received in their packages, with time allotted to taste each one. Heritage Distilling is one of the top premier craft distilleries in the United States, making a variety of whiskeys, vodkas, gins, aquavit and rums from as many local ingredients as possible.
Guests were also treated to virtual entertainment provided by Jolie & Sonny, a high-energy country music duo featuring two successful Texas country artists, Jolie Holliday and Sonny Burgess, who are big supporters of Beads of Courage!
Beads of Courage founder and executive director Jean Gribbon shared information on the mission of Beads of Courage, World Beads of Courage Day, and the BOC Carry a Bead program. Other activities included an online raffle and some fun surprises!
