Support for Communities via Cocktails

We get a delightful amount of inquiries on how to score a "Crooked Water Cocktail Tasting Dinner". These are dinners I host, up to 15 a year, that assist in raising funds for a variety of charities in Minnesota. Nothing is more gratifying than hosting and cooking for like-minded individuals who attend with open minds and giving hearts.

See below for our list of organizations we will be donating to in 2020. Want to score a dinner? Click on their link to buy tickets/attend their fundraiser and, during the Live Auction, bid on our Crooked Water Cocktail Tasting Dinner!

Want to know our community impact from 2019? Scroll all the way down. We were thrilled to have helped raise over $40,000 for local charities with our donated Cocktail Tasting Dinners and other events. I reinvest 100% of CWS’s funds directly back into the company, and have since its’ inception, so the ability to impact the community while in start-up mode is incredibly gratifying and an honor. A huge thank you to all the participating guests who ponied up the real dough to make these events happen and bring support to our communities.

We greatly appreciated our partner, Kowalski’s Markets, to help us ensure our guests experience a gorgeous meal, filled with exceptional uniqueness and quality.
