Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma's Giving Spirits Returns Oct. 27

The fourth annual Giving Spirits, to benefit the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma, returns Friday, Oct. 27, at Cain’s Ballroom in downtown Tulsa.

The Grand Tasting event level allows guests to sample a collection of spirits from a variety of distilleries and attend seminars focusing on the nuance and craft of whiskey making.

The event also offers a limited-access VIP Whiskey Library, guided by master distillers and featuring a showcase of rare and exceptional whiskey from some of the most elite makers. The VIP Whiskey Library takes place in the historic Cain’s Mezzanine. VIP ticket holders also receive express early entry at 6 p.m. with a one-of-a-kind seminar.

Guests will enjoy gourmet food, spirits, confections and music as well as mixologists will also prepare unique whiskey cocktails to sample. Other offerings include a live auction, raffle and whiskey pull.

Levels of participation include Designated Driver (non-alcoholic) for $50; Grand Tasting for $150; and VIP Whiskey Library Tickets for $300.

The event’s goal is to raise 250,000 meals to feed those in need in Oklahoma. With the aim of filling many Oklahoma plates, this year’s Giving Spirits event looks to address the issue of hunger in our community while raising awareness with an evening of purpose and hope. Funds raised from Giving Spirits will support the programs and projects of the Food Bank crucial to their maintenance during the difficult times of the year. Approximately 632,000 Oklahomans, including one in four children, often don’t know where they will get their next meal.

“By attending Giving Spirits, guests can feel good about supporting Food Bank programming which provides food assistance to children, seniors, veterans and hard working families struggling to get enough to eat,” says Eileen Bradshaw, executive director of the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. “The event truly is a bit of alchemy. We are going to turn whisky into food for people who are hungry in Tulsa and all across eastern Oklahoma.”

Guests must be 21 years and older to attend Giving Spirits.
