CT BCONE hosted the Annual Post-Holiday Networking event on January 28,2021. It was a virtual event sponsored by Alpha Analytical to celebrate the New Year and raise money for the Charlie Bartsch Brownfield Scholarship Fund.
Prior to the event, cocktail kits from the Hartford Flavor Company were sent out to registrants containing all the ingredients to make two different cocktails. During the presentation, Lelaneia Dubay, creator of the unique liquors used in the cocktails, showed everyone how to craft the drinks to enjoy in the comforts of our own home. The group enjoyed making the signature “Miss Cranberry” Prosecco drink as well as the unique Tikki Tikki Chai drink, perfect for the wintery months. The kit provided enough ingredients for two drinks, so it was encouraged to invite another person.
Not only were the drinks delicious, but the well-attended event eliminated geographical distance and made for a wonderful opportunity to see some familiar faces, and chat about news in the industry. In past years, this fundraising event provided members the opportunity to enjoy beverages and good company, while contributing to the Scholarship Fund. Although it looked a little different this year, the virtual alternative held true to tradition and was a fun, lighthearted event that raised $600 for the scholarship fund.
Thanks so much to all who attended our Virtual Cocktail Experience as well as the Hartford Flavor Company and Alpha Analytical for their support!
