Time: 5:30 - 8:30 p.m.

Ticket Includes: Appitizers and deserts from Wheelhouse Farm Truck & Catering, 6 tickets for cocktail samples, music, and fun raffles. A cash bar will also be available.
Some of the area's most creative bartenders will compete as they shake, stir, and dash the most delectable cocktails using ingredients sourced from local farms. Guests will sample the concoctions and vote for their favorite to be crowned the People's Choice Winner. The top two vote-getters will compete head-to-head, crafting a cocktail with a mystery ingredient. An all-star panel of judges will determine the finest mixologist.

All proceeds from the event will benefit The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. Since 1982, The Food Bank has been feeding our neighbors in need and leading the community to end hunger. Last year, we distributed more than 10 million pounds of food throughout Western Massachusetts, serving more than 200,000 people (including children, seniors, veterans, the disabled and working families). We work closely with our member agencies (comprised of pantries, meal sites and shelters), providing them with the necessary food to help their communities, and to help them develop long-term projects to fight the underlying causes of hunger in our region.
