1350 Distilling of Colorado Springs, Colorado announced today they raised $1,235.00 during their first Angel Battalion’s Nonprofit Quarterly Focus for Veterans Victory Alliance (VVA) during the months of April through June 2022.
The funds were collected from their total bottle sales made in their Taste Lounge at 520 E. Pikes Peak Avenue, Colorado Springs, Colorado.
A check presentation to Mary Miller, Chief Operating Officer and Brandy Moralez, Secretary of the Board of Veterans Victory Alliance was conducted on September 28, 2022 at 1350 Distilling.
“Ten percent of every bottle sold in our Taste Lounge is collected during the quarter,” stated co-owner, Kandis Bragg. “This is our first non-profit focus, and we are very excited to share our successes with their cause.”
This was not the first event these two organizations joined forces. On April 23, 2022, 1350 Distilling hosted VVA’s annual fundraising event which raised over $12,000 for the organization and coincided with 1350 Distilling’s release of their Space Force Guardian Bourbon.
VVA is a non-profit organization providing a dedicated Montana ranch venue for nation-wide Veteran and First Responder organizations, providing outdoor recreation activities and delivering nature-inspired personal and team wellness. Located on 17 acres along the famous Bitterroot River, the staff of VVA hosts other non-profit organizations similarly focused on helping Veteran and First Responders “Reconnect” with themselves and others who have shared a common journey; “Recreate” in the pristine Montana environment; and “Rejuvenate” through time at this pristine mountain sanctuary.
