LAS VEGAS — Love will be in the air on Valentine’s Day, and more than the romantic kind. At the upcoming virtual Champagne, Chambord & Chocolate fundraiser, Southern Nevadans can show love for community by supporting SafeNest and the victims, families, and pets they serve who are impacted by domestic violence.
Champagne, Chambord & Chocolate, running from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 12th, will feature a virtual Champagne tasting with products from Louisville, Kentucky-based Brown-Forman Corp. (BF), the largest American-owned spirit and wine company.
The virtual event will explore how SafeNest uses the science of hope to develop programs and services designed to prevent domestic violence, protect victims, and empower survivors. Immediately following the hope discussion led by SafeNest CEO, Liz Ortenburger, a wine specialist from Brown-Forman will lead participants through a fun and informative Champagne and Chambord tasting.
A $150 Champagne, Chambord & Chocolate ticket will get buyers a commemorative tasting box for two (sponsored by Towbin Bentley of Las Vegas) packed with three splits of Korbel (Brut, Brut Rosé and Sweet Cuvee); a bottle of premium whisky for non-champagne drinkers; Chambord (a black-raspberry liqueur); two champagne flutes; custom chocolates; and a raffle ticket for a two-night stay at the Four Seasons on the Strip. Additional raffle tickets are available for $20 each.
Money raised will go directly into SafeNest’s “Invest in the Nest” sustainability fund which supports five core, confidential services including emergency shelter, 24/7 domestic violence hotline, counseling, advocacy, and prevention education.
“We invite the community to join us in raising awareness about the epidemic of domestic violence and a toast to the healing power of hope,” SafeNest CEO, Liz Ortenburger said.
Ticket buyers can pick up their tasting boxes at SafeNest headquarters, 3900 Meadows Lane, starting Feb. 10 or schedule contactless delivery for $25. Visit https://safenest.org/ to learn more about SafeNest.
