Whiskies of the World Houston has been rescheduled for September 30
We at Whiskies of the World wish to express our deepest sympathy for everyone who has been in any way touched by the devastation brought to Texas by Hurricane Harvey. We know that many of you are deeply affected by this disaster. As we all work to recover from these last weeks and get back to a degree of normalcy, we have decided after careful consideration to both reschedule our Houston Whiskies of the World event to Saturday, September 30th (at JW Marriott Galleria), and donate 50% of ticket sales to assist in Houston’s flood relief.
We are eager to support the Houston community and hope this rescheduled event will allow us to raise funds and distribute them through our partner charity, the Rotary Foundation, in a timely, helpful fashion.
Whiskies of the World® brings together distillers from around the world to share their finest spirits and knowledge with whisky enthusiasts. Discover the Art of Whisky in the company of connoisseurs and whisky celebrities.
