JDRF Bourbon & BowTie Bash Sets New Fundraising Record

Cincy Chic loves working with and supporting JDRF, especially when fun drinks and fashion are involved! That’s why we were so excited to have a table at this year’s Bourbon & BowTie Bash this past weekend! Check out the fun details of their new fundraising records below!

On Saturday, October 19, JDRF hosted its 6th annual Bourbon & BowTie Bash, billed as the hottest party in Cincinnati, and set a new fundraising record of $350,000 raised for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. With nearly 2,000 guests, the sold out event featured 10 bourbon tastings and food and cocktails from over 25 of the area’s best-loved bars and restaurants. Local 12’s Bob Herzog served as emcee and auctioneer, and the evening’s Fund a Cure programming featured the story of Caroline (Callie) Boyce-Jones, who was diagnosed with T1D four years ago at the age of 25. Contrary to what many people think, T1D is not just a disease that impacts children, and it can strike anyone at any age and at any time. T1D is an autoimmune disease that has no association with dietary or lifestyle choices.

At the event, guests voted on their favorites, and the winning bar and restaurant partners were: Best Sweets, Tres Belle Cakes; Best Restaurant, Taglio; Best Up-and-Comer, Soleil Kitchen; and Best Cocktail, made by Jacob Trevino with Lonely Pine. Celebrity judge Molly Wellmann helped select and announce the 2019 Best Bartender recipient, which was Catherine Manabat with HomeMakers Bar. Also recognized at the event were the 17 young professionals who served as 2019 BowTie Barons & Baronesses, each of whom helped personally raise corporate contributions for JDRF. Also instrumental to the event’s success are the JDRF Emerging Leaders Council, which is a group of young professionals who helped with event planning in partnership with JDRF Senior Development Coordinator Jackie Oney.

“The Bourbon & BowTie Bash is one of our favorite events of the year,” said JDRF Southwest Ohio Executive Director Melissa Newman. “It’s exciting to host a fundraiser that has such a reputation as being such a fun party, but what’s most important is that it also serves the purpose of raising money for a critical need. We’re incredibly grateful to the community for rallying around the Bourbon & BowTie Bash and making a difference for everyone impacted by type 1 diabetes.”
