Founding Spirits and Farmers & Distillers turned up the heat last night for an important cause, the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance. Our mixologists joined more than 50 female culinary and bar wizards in downtown DC for Turn Up the Heat.
Led by bartender Carly Barsalou, our team mixed and served one of our favorite Farmers & Distillers cocktails featuring our very own craft vodka. Bubbles & Berries combines our Founding Spirits Vodka with blackberry, lemon, cognac, Curaçao, and Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut. This slightly bubbly craft cocktail is light, a bit sweet, and very refreshing.
With over 400 attendees, Turn Up the Heat is a unique event showcasing women mixologists and chefs in the DC region. The gala proceeds help fund groundbreaking ovarian cancer private research grants, advocacy efforts, and support programs for patients and their families affected by this disease.
Every 24 minutes a woman is diagnosed with ovarian cancer in the U.S. The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance is the leading ovarian cancer research, advocacy, and patient support organization in the world. They are the largest, non-government funder of ovarian cancer research. They are the primary voice for the ovarian cancer community on Capitol Hill and beyond. They also direct a Woman to Woman support program, which pairs newly diagnosed patients with trained survivor volunteers.
