A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE CAUSE:
AVON 39 Walk to End Breast Cancer, April 30th – May 1st 2016
AVON 39ers have banded together since 2003 in solidarity with one goal: to take breast cancer down.
The Walk is 39 miles over two days (in other words, a marathon and a half).
The Benefit’s Team is composed of members and friends of Saint Mark Presbyterian Church. 
Here’s what your donations made to the Avon walk will do:
$25 pays for test tubes at a research lab. 
$150 provides a mammogram for an uninsured woman.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE WHISKY:
Highland Park is made today with the same enduring belief and integrity, to the same exacting standards, as it has been since 1798. Highland Park in Orkney, Scotland is one of only a handful of distilleries that still retains a traditional malting floor, turning each batch of malt by hand, in what is a physically demanding process. Since being named The Best Spirit in the World (three times), they have also received World’s Best Single Malt** for Highland Park 21 years old and the Ultimate Spirit in 2013 for Highland Park 25 years old. This is the first time a spirit has been awarded a full 100 point score in the Ultimate Spirits Challenge.
