Philly Pours — the annual food and beverage event that helps raise funds for Resources for Human Development‘s programs, which help tens of thousands of people — will take place on June 23, and it is as important now than ever.
Now in its sixth year, and a premier Philadelphia food and beverage event since its inception, this years’ experience is sure to dazzle guests. It starts at 6 p.m. and will include a virtual mixology experience led by Master Mixologist, Nate Rogers.
A Philly native, Rogers, has been part of the hospitality industry for over 20 years. He has done everything from barbacking to bartending to managing restaurants and clubs. Rogers is now the Marketing Manager for PA, VA, AL, and MS for Beam Suntory representing the brands Courvoisier, Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, Hornitos, Pinnacle, Effen, and Knob Creek.
During the interactive Mixology Class at Philly Pours, attendees will learn how to make the perfect cocktail or mocktail and pick up some cool tricks and skills. Tickets to the “Mix It Up Experience” will include everything that you need to make three top-of-the-line beverages. A private virtual link will be sent to guests so they can follow step-by-step instructions on a live platform.
The goal for Philly Pours is 150 attendees. We want individuals to leave with a deeper understanding of the organization, its mission and relative community impact.
Resources for Human Development (RHD) reached a milestone and turned 50 in 2020. We continue to celebrate 50 years of delivering the highest quality services to people of all abilities, in a values-driven environment built around respect for the dignity and worth of the people we support.
Philly Pours benefits RHD’s mission to support people of all abilities with effective, innovative, and person-centered programs — addressing behavioral health, intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), addiction recovery, children and families, and people experiencing homelessness.
As we embark on our next chapter, we want to extend our commitment to the highest quality service — and to asking each day: “How can we do it better?” It is a great privilege to provide services to people in need, and to support people as they build meaningful lives for themselves, their families and their communities. In these ways, RHD effects change, one community — or even one person — at a time.
