Annual Mocktail Tasting Fundraiser at Real Art Ways in Hartford
May 22 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The nonprofit organization A Promise to Jordan is excited to host its first “Mocktail” Tasting fundraiser on Thursday, May 22, 2022 at Real Art Ways in Hartford. The recovery-friendly event will bring restaurateurs and bar owners from across the state together to show off their best non-alcoholic cocktails and compete to be named the best!
The event will take place from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the art gallery located at 56 Arbor Street, with COVID-19 restrictions in place. The charitable competition is expected to draw hundreds of guests to taste the mocktails and appetizers, partake of the silent auction and raffles, and enjoy a great night out. If gathering restrictions are still in place, the event may be a mix of in-person and virtual or be completely virtual, if necessary. Virtual guests will receive a mocktail kit to make the delicious drinks at home by following along as the vendors mix the recipes live.
Tickets are $45. For more info or to purchase tickets visit mocktailtasting.eventbrite.com.
Gray notes that there is no fee for restaurants or bars to enter the competition and that the nonprofit organization is covering the cost of their temporary food permits. Several businesses have already committed to participating, including Fork & Fire, Soma Grille, Better Rhodes, an alcohol-free beverage distributor, and Dope Fried Food Truck.
The event is made possible by many generous businesses, including McCall Center for Behavioral Health, Tara Rahmy of Coldwell Banker Realty, and The Village for Families and Children. Custom sponsorship opportunities are available to meet the unique marketing needs of each business, organization or individual by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
“We are also accepting auction and raffle donations such as gift cards, gift baskets, home décor, jewelry and fashion items, gourmet treats and tickets to entertainment and travel destinations,” adds Gray. “We raised over $6,000 at last year’s event and, with all of our amazing activities lined up for this year’s function, we know that we will surpass that total!”
