We hope you can join us Saturday, October 26, for Sound and Spirit: A Lively Southern Evening to Benefit the LEE Initiative. Guests will begin their evening with a luxury bus ride from Louisville to Loretto, along the way enjoying champagne and delicious canapés. Upon arrival, guests will have time to explore our National Historic Landmark distillery.

Chef Edward Lee and the LEE Initiative mentee chefs will then re-create the incredible meal they recently served at The James Beard House in New York City. And, of course, the evening’s unique and inventive fare will be paired with handcrafted Maker’s Mark cocktails curated by our very own Thomas Bolton and Erin Delaney.

After dinner, guests will be treated to an exclusive performance by acclaimed singer-songwriter Maggie Rose. With its captivating distillery backdrop, the performance is sure to be the highlight of an already amazing evening.

Finally, Chef Lee will host a live (and lively) auction, full of unique gifts and experiences, each sure to please even the most fervent foodie.

After dinner, guests will once again board the luxury bus for a safe ride back to Louisville, complete with coffee and chocolates for the road.

Tickets for the full evening, including transportation to and from Loretto, are $300 per person or $2,500 for a table of 10. All ticket sales from the evening go directly to the LEE Initiative. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit the LEE Initiative website.
