    En we zijn live met het doneren voor Stichting Hartekind !

    Het bericht zowel openbaar als in de uitnodiging van de proeverij omdat er een aantal leden (toppers!) hebben aangegeven dat ze ook graag willen meedoen/doneren aan de actie zonder dat ze erbij (kunnen) zijn.

    Yeah, let's make Ypenburg great again!

    Doneer Nu!



    WCY’s First Charity Tasting

    “Zij een kans, u wat drams”

    Vorig jaar gaf Martin Van 't Zet een tasting met louter gesloten distilleries. Dit jaar sluiten we weer af met een closed distillery tasting van Martin. Vorig jaar was de tasting gratis. Dit jaar niet. Niet dat Martin de toelage in eigen zak gaat steken.

    Nee, dit jaar vragen we de deelnemers een bedrag te storten dat jij voor de tasting over hebt, met een minimum van € 30,-. Het bedrag dat we met deze tasting ophalen doneren we aan Stichting Hartekind. Op deze manier steunen we kids, en hun ouders, die het minder hebben dan wij en kunnen wij ons eens realiseren hoe goed wij het hebben.

    De tasting zal weer blind gegeven worden. En let op: deze tasting is op een zondag, dus geen aansluitende BYOB.

    Via deze weg willen we Martin alvast onwijs bedanken voor dit zeer mooie idee en de inbreng van (ongetwijfeld) weer hele gave flessen!
