Yumbrella, South Miami’s favorite new food hall, offered guests a tour around the world through delicious whiskeys, courtesy of Brown-Forman, one of the largest American-owned spirits and wine companies — all for a good cause. The whiskey trek of the globe was a special fundraiser for SSJ Health Foundation’s St. John Bosco Clinic, taking place at Yumbrella on June 25th from 6-8pm. The eclectic boutique food court prepared an extraordinary menu for fans of the malted spirit. Hosted by Brown-Forman Whisky Specialist and hospitality expert, Henry Infante, the tasting tour began in the US with Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel, cross the pond to Ireland and Scotland with Slane Irish Whiskey and Glendronach 12, and then back to America with Old Forester Rye. Tickets to the event also included food pairings from Miami’s Killer Melts, a resident of the food hall.
“We are proud to put together this event for SSJ Health Foundation,” said Aldo Cardona, Yumbrella partner and SSJ board member. “We have a great space in an amazing location that is centrally located. It is a pleasure to host community events, especially for one that does so much for the welfare of our community and is so close to our hearts.”
“We really appreciate the support of local businesses to help us in serving both children and adults that are underserved and in need within our community,” said Berta Cabrera, Executive Director of the SSJ Health Foundation. “The generosity of the business community is what allows us to bring the best possible care to the underserved and uninsured. We are so thankful to Yumbrella and Killer Melts for this exciting fundraiser that is sure to attract a lot of attention to what we have been doing for over 25 years.”
Through St. John Bosco Clinic, the SSJ Health Foundation meets the medical needs of anyone who comes through their doors. Due to the generosity of the sixty-seven attendees, the SSJ Health Foundation can now provide a year’s worth of medical care and supplies for six patients.
