At the upcoming virtual Champagne, Chambord & Chocolate fundraiser, Southern Nevadans can show love for community by supporting SafeNest and the victims, families, and pets they serve who are impacted by domestic violence.

Champagne, Chambord & Chocolate, running from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 12, will feature a virtual Champagne tasting with products from Louisville, Kentucky-based Brown-Forman Corp. (BF), the largest American-owned spirit and wine company.

The virtual event will explore how SafeNest uses the science of hope to develop programs and services designed to prevent domestic violence, protect victims, and empower survivors.

Immediately following the hope discussion led by SafeNest CEO, Liz Ortenburger, a wine specialist from BrownForman will lead participants through a fun and informative Champagne and Chambord tasting.

A $150 Champagne, Chambord & Chocolate ticket will get buyers a commemorative tasting box for two (sponsored by Towbin Bentley of Las Vegas) packed with three splits of Korbel (Brut, Brut Rosé and Sweet Cuvee); a bottle of premium whisky for non-champagne drinkers; Chambord (a blackraspberry liqueur); two champagne flutes; custom chocolates; and a raffle ticket for a two-night stay at the Four Seasons on the Strip.

Additional raffle tickets are available for $20 each. Money raised will go directly into SafeNest’s “Invest in the Nest” sustainability fund which supports five core, confidential services including emergency shelter, 24/7 domestic violence hotline, counseling, advocacy, and prevention education.

Ticket buyers can pick up their tasting boxes at SafeNest headquarters, 3900 Meadows Lane, starting Feb. 10 or schedule contactless delivery for $25.
