Whiskey Wishes, Northeast Ohio's premier whiskey event, is an annual fundraiser helping to grant wishes for children at A Special Wish Foundation of Northeast Ohio who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. The theme for the 2024 Whiskey Wishes event is "Wild West Whiskey", featuring western themed entertainment, activities, and live music for guests to enjoy! Guests can look forward to whiskey tastings with a heavy focus on bourbon, a whiskey raffle, whiskey seminars, delicious food, and a cigar bar. Members from the Cleveland Bourbon Co-op will pour and provide an educational experience for guests throughout the tastings. Guests can also enjoy beer, wine, and vodka drinks which will be available for purchase at the cocktail bar.
A Special Wish Foundation is a local non-profit organization dedicated to granting the wishes of children between birth and 20 years of age who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness or disease. A Special Wish children receive treatment at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s, Cleveland Clinic Children’s, and Akron Children’s Hospitals.
