The fourth Cocktails on the Roof is headed our way fast: September 7! We have new vendors joining our existing vendors and a new out-of-the-box idea – a Wine on the Roof table – added to what you have told us you love: DJ MAV from SOS Entertainment and a HUGE dance floor, both cozy private lounges and large public lounges, single spirit vendors and your favorite SCV restaurants sharing cocktail and food pairings, trees to create that “Manhattan” roof top feel and lights to…light it all up just for you!
Hosted by the WiSH Education Foundation, Eve Bushman of Eve’s Wine 101 and Eve Bushman Consulting and Marlee Lauffer, president, Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital Foundation. A committee of worker bees and many volunteers make the event possible – and remarkable. Also, know that Cocktails on the Roof is a non-profit event that raises money to support over 23k Hart District students in grades 7-12 in the Santa Clarita Valley.
Participants at press time include Salt Creek Grille, Wolf Creek Restaurant and Brewery, Dulce Vida Tequila, Mammoth Coffee Roasting (Espresso Martini), JFC International (sake-based cocktails), Alchemy Valencia, Marston’s Valencia, An Indian Affaire, LA Scotch Club (the only event the club participates in), Lazy Dog Restaurant and Bar, Pomp & Whimsy Gin Liqueur, Vines Restaurant and Bar, Willow Creek Distillery (formerly the Distillery at Opolo), The Newhall Press Room, (Moscow) Mule 2.0, Nealie’s Skillet, Lucille’s Smokehouse BBQ, Honu Coffee, The Local Pub and Grill, Smokehouse on Main, Impex Beverages (spirit brands), La Cocina Bar and Grill, Claim Jumper Restaurant and Saloon, Figenza Fig Vodka, Sweet Beams Ice Cream Truck, Sweet T’s Treats and Nothing Bundt Cakes.
This year, for the first time and due to high demand, we will be adding a Wine on the Roof table to our Cocktails on the Roof layout. It’s our latest out-of-the-box idea from Eve Bushman! Our generous co-host from Wine on the Roof, local winemaker and winery owner Steve Lemley, will be talking about all of the exciting wines being produced in his facility and showcasing a few of the potential wines that will be part of the Spring 2019 event.
“This WiSH signature event is a perfect opportunity for our community to come together to party with a purpose!” said Amy Daniels, Executive Director, Wish Education Foundation. “This year our focus is STEAM, with an emphasis on the ARTS.
