2021 Commonwealth Bash @ Base249
On May 9th, 2020 the Lexington Bourbon Society was scheduled to assist the Living Arts & Science Center (LASC) with their largest annual fundraiser, H’Artful of Fun. As you are aware the pandemic kept this and numerous other events used to fund non-profits that inspire participation in art and science by engaging the community through education, discovery, exploration and creativity from occurring. As the Center for Disease Control has begun to ease restrictions, it’s time to assist LASC return to doing what it has so successfully for central Kentucky for over 53 years, engaging our community through hands-on and interactive instruction in arts and science directly from professional educators and active artists and scientists. The cost associated with providing collaborative experiences for the community, educational programs in schools, community centers, and other venues as well as free programming for all members of the Central Kentucky community are quite challenging enough under normal circumstances. After a year of being closed down due to the pandemic, a place of creativity is slowly coming back to life. The center started a YouTube channel during COVID to try and stay connected to its patrons, however, with classes, art shows, and events all canceled, the Living Arts and Science Center is facing a $400,000 revenue loss. We have partnered with Maker’s Mark Distillery and BaseHere to hold our annual Commonwealth Bash to assist in off-setting those losses. The event will be Saturday, June 5th, 6:30-9:00 pm est, in the parking lot of Base249 at 249 E. Main St., Lexington, KY, 40507. The evening will consist of live music by David “Chill” Napier of Lexington’s own Driftwood Gypsy, a barrel demonstration by Independent Stave Company, live and silent auctions, food by J. Render’s BBQ, a Maker’s Mark cocktail competition featuring the region’s best mixologist with awards for both Guest Favorite and Judges Favorite, and more.
