LAKEWOOD, Ohio (WJW) – Guests not only taste-tested a $50,000 bottle of whiskey at a charity event Tuesday evening, but also raised big funds for people in need.
Tickets to the event at the Clifton Club in Lakewood were $3,500 for the first 19 people. The 20th ticket was raffled off among 200 people who paid $100 for a chance at the taste.
Proceeds from the event benefit Cleveland’s Malachi House, which serves homeless people who are terminally ill.
Organizers say the tasting event raised $70,000.
This was the second year for the event. Last year featured a different rare whiskey that was worth over $40,000.
