A fundraiser this week will be raising money to better the well-being of Alabama’s children.

Alabama Children First, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization focused on improving children’s lives by impacting public policy, will be hosting a fundraiser this Friday, Aug. 24, at Wind Creek Casino in Montgomery.

All proceeds from the fundraiser will go to ACF. The organization works with state officials, politicians and leaders to change policies dealing with serious issues facing children including child abuse, teen driving and juvenile justice reform.

The first annual Bourbon, Blue & BBQ will feature more than 20 varieties of bourbon, BBQ samplings and live music from the JoeJack Band.

Alabama Children First say they hope the event will become the premiere bourbon tasting event in Montgomery in its first year. The event is aimed at both sipping novices and for experienced bourbon connoisseurs.

Three different levels of bourbon will be available for attendees to try. Featured bourbons include Knob Creek, Eagle Rare, Elijah Craig and Old Forester 1897.

ACF says the event will be laidback with good music, great food and a chance to expand your palate with different bourbon choices. Tickets are available only on their website at bourbonbluesbbq.com.
