Boots & Pearls: Wine & Whiskey

Boots & Pearls: Wine & Whiskey

Who Doesn’t Love a Wine & Whiskey Tasting? 

Far from a standard fundraising event, Boots & Pearls: Wine & Whiskey challenges typical expectations as guests sample a variety of libations courtesy of J. Rieger’s world-renowned mixologists, while experiencing delicious food and lively entertainment. Wear boots and jeans or your fancy pearls. Or don’t. We don’t care what you wear! Just come and be prepared to have loads of fun!


Stay tuned for the 2024 date!
