Sabert Corporation is proud to share the success of our most recent sponsorship – The 6th Annual Bourbon and Bowties™ A Taste of Corbett’s, benefiting Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky on June 11, 2015.
The annual Bourbon and Bowties™ event is held to celebrate the impact that Kosair Children’s hospital has had on the community. With more than 170,000 children from throughout Kentucky and Southern Indiana who are cared for each year at the hospital and its sister facilities, Kosair has proven itself to be a place of hope, helping children live stronger, healthier lives by providing quality and compassionate healthcare.
Funds raised at the Bourbon and Bowties™ events help Kosair provide funding for lifesaving technology and specialized care for kids of all ages with a range of illnesses and injuries. This year, Bourbon and Bowties™ honored two amazing children, Clara and Wilson McGarvey, who were born at just 26 weeks. After extensive care and support from Kosair, the twins are active and healthy, celebrating their 3rd birthday with the attendees of the event.
Sabert’s donation of square plates and cutlery provided the perfect canvas for the 35 chefs sampling tastes of their exquisite menus to over 500 guests at the 6th annual event. Bourbon tastings were offered throughout the night, with sponsors such as Maker’s Mark and Woodford Reserve providing samples and tips on how to taste bourbons properly. Of all the guests who ate with Sabert, Clara and Wilson were our favorites, eating their birthday cake off of our square plates!
