Lexington Bourbon Society is excited to host our December Social Sipper, open to both members and non-members, at Bru Burger, supporting Toys for Tots this holiday season!

Deck the halls with bottles of bourbon… fa la la la la… it’s sipper time.

Greetings all!

Can you believe that time of year is rapidly approaching again? Another chapter drawing to a close, and it’s time to gather and celebrate our journey together. Our final destination on the 2018 Social Sipper road map this year will be shared once again with our good friends at Bru Burger and sponsor a familiar cause. Our Cheers for Charity event will allow us to both celebrate the holidays with our native spirit while also participating in the spirit of good by partnering again with Toys For Tots to bring joy, toys, and smiles to children throughout the Lexington area!

So how are we helping? We will be hosting a drawing for a variety of prizes and gift cards to both members and the public! Toys for Tots will have two Marines present to collect the proceeds and also have tax receipts available for donated drawing entrees.

How you can win:
For every $20 donated or brand new toy valued at $20 “with receipt” provided, you will earn one drawing entry. Example: If you donate $100 or a $100 toy, that’s 5 chances. The more entries, the merrier and encouraged!

Bru Burger will be providing appetizers, our LBS standard discount, and a few other fun surprises throughout the evening…including premium bourbon pours available just for our event!

And to show commitment to the cause, Bru has indicated that if we raise $500, they will match our donation! So tell your friends, tell your family, tell your neighbors. You won’t want to miss it! And don’t forget, our sippers are open to the public. We look forward to seeing you there!

And as always, drink responsibly.
