Whiskey Business: Westward Exploration 2022

Whiskey Business is Gwyneth’s Gift Foundation’s biggest annual fundraiser. Each year the event revolves around a particular theme, to include the premium whiskeys that will be available for tastings.

The event will also feature an open bar of top-shelf whiskey, premium whiskey tastings, live band, cigar roller, and more!

100% of the proceeds will be used towards training and educating the community on the importance of Hands-Only CPR and the use of an AED.


Sponsorship applications will be processed in the order in which they are received. Please be aware they are processed on a first come first serve basis and there are limited spaces available. We appreciate your support for this incredible event, and we look forward to Whiskey Business 2022!
