The Washington Jack Rose Society cordially is holding their Fifth Annual "Cocktails for Cambodia" fundraising happy hour! This year the featured speaker will be Phil Greene, co-founder of the Museum of the American Cocktail. Phil will demonstrate how to make two of the most important and delicious mixed drinks of the 20th century, the Moscow Mule and the Ramos Gin Fizz, with an opportunity to enjoy these historical cocktails during and after his presentation.
This special event will raise funds for Sam Relief, a nonprofit agency that builds schools, digs wells, and provides food and medicine for poor children in Cambodia. The founder of Sam Relief is Sambonn Lek, who has become a legendary figure during his 30+ years behind the bar at the Mayflower. Every July Sam travels to Cambodia to personally deliver vital goods on behalf of his organization.
As shown in the picture below,in 2006, the Washington Jack Rose Society provided Sam Relief with enough funds to purchase 10 tons of rice for the Angkor Hospital for Children.
Anyone donating $75 will receive two of our world-famous old-fashioned glasses featuring the Society logo. They are a handsome addition to any home bar! Even if you don’t drink, or if you can only stop by for a few minutes, please do come to Town & Country and join in the fun. The festivities will run from 5 pm until approximately 8 pm. Phil will give his demonstration around 6:30, depending on the flow of the crowd. We hope that you can be a part of this exciting occasion… Cheers!
