Like many people, we have been touched by the solidarity displayed in the face of Hurricane Sandy. The event devastated one of the world’s most famous cities, but the sense of community spirit has highlighted the best in people.
To further show our support, we provided our whiskey at a special evening hosted by Michael Collins, the Irish Ambassador to the US on the 11th December. The event was held at the Embassy of Ireland in Washington D. C. and was ‘an expression of solidarity with victims of Hurricane Sandy’, mobilising prominent members of the Irish community to work together in relief efforts. It was a good chance for congressional members and members of the American Ireland Fund to raise awareness for these efforts. We’re very proud to have been a part of this.
The night also saw two prize draws, where the winners were presented with The Wild Geese Irish Whiskey Collection. Congratulations go to Mr Joe Monahan and Mr Michael Brennan. Guests were also treated to servings of our whiskey.
A representative at the Embassy thanked The Wild Geese for our support and all contributions went towards helping the victims of the Hurricane.
‘Sincere thanks once again for your kind support towards the event, where two mixed cases of The Wild Geese Irish Whiskey were awarded to our two prize draw winners. All were greatly appreciated and enjoyed and Ambassador Collins also expressed thanks to The Wild Geese Irish Whiskey Collection during his address at the event’
*In North America The Wild Geese Irish Whiskey Collection is sold as ‘The Wild Geese Soldiers & Heroes Irish Whiskey’[pinit]
