Get ready to sip, savor, and support a great cause at the second annual Whiskey, Wine & Whiskers event, taking place on Saturday, May 20th from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Wilburn Street Studio in Nashville. Hosted by Dismas House, a residential reentry program for formerly incarcerated men, this pet-friendly fundraiser promises an afternoon of tastings, treats, and furry fun—all in support of a worthy cause.
Attendees can look forward to sampling some of the finest whiskeys and wines from local distilleries and wineries, as well as indulging in delicious bites from food trucks and relaxing with cigars at the cigar bar. A 360° photo booth and music from DJ Sterl The Pearl will add to the festive atmosphere, and pet owners can compete in the best-dressed pet competition for a chance to win prizes.
But Whiskey, Wine & Whiskers is more than just a good time—it’s an opportunity to support Dismas House and its mission to help formerly incarcerated men successfully reintegrate into society. Founded over 47 years ago, Dismas House offers a warm and supportive community for men returning to the community directly from all state correctional facilities for men and county jails throughout Tennessee. The organization’s comprehensive “Four Pillars of Programming” (basic needs, health and well-being, life skills, and legal support) provide residents with the tools they need to overcome the many challenges of reentry.
In addition to supporting a great cause, Whiskey, Wine & Whiskers is also committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion. Dismas House has established a culture of dignity, respect, and fairness that celebrates the diversity and unique differences of every individual welcomed into their community. The organization strives to develop programming that cultivates the inclusion of all individuals, regardless of background, so they feel involved, respected, treated with dignity, and supported as they begin their transition back into the community.
