Drinking for a cause. (Courtesy)
I know I've already penciled in next January's booze-a-thon with a cause, AKA the San Antonio Cocktail Conference, but now the organization has released a new partner charity. Along with helping provide life-saving heart surgeries for tots through HeartGift San Antonio, proceeds from the SACC will benefit San Antonio's ChildSafe, a "Child Advocacy Center, the only one in Bexar County that provides specialized services to children that have abused, neglected or sexually abused," per the site's About Us page.
The SACC also released the line up of the conference (hold onto your butts):
- Thursday, January 16: Opening gala at the Majestic Theater, 7-11 p.m.
- Friday, January 17: Seminars at the Sheraton Gunter Hotel from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. followed by Rio San Antonio Cruises to the Pearl at 6 p.m. and ending with a Pearl Stables Soiree from 7-11 p.m. that will feature Texas Spirits.
- Saturday, January 18: Seminars from noon to 5 p.m. followed by a Houston Street Soiree with Bohanan's and Luke from 6 to 10 p.m. The night ends with an after party at the Empire Theatre hosted by the 86 Co. and musical guests The Spazmatics.
- Sunday, January 19: The Bloody Mary Brunch hosted by Deep Eddy Vodka at the Sheraton Gunter HOtel will help your cruda. Sunday continues with a cocktail competition from 5-7 p.m. and a closing party at the Brooklynite from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.
