This year the Whisky Wisemen Society took its next step towards one of its objectives, to create a sustainable fundraising model.

This was a very special years for us as our Presenting sponsor, Glenmorangie, gifted us an incredible prize; flight, accommodation, and ticket to the opening of the British Open.
What a truly remarkable kick-off event! There were so many individuals that helped bring this together, but it would not have been possible without our sponsors, INDOCHINO, Original Grain and Glenmorangie! INDOCHINO andOriginal Grain provided amazing prizes that three lucky individuals got to go home with and Glenmorangie provided the tasty whisky that people bonded over! Lastly, we would like to thank SIPBAR for creating and providing the libations for the evening!

WOW! What a night! We started Club Wise two years ago and from the very first day we have built such a unique and passionate community full of members who love whisky and love the concept of #dogood and #bebetter. Our members really do live this ideology every single day and our Club Wise is just one vehicle where they are able to prove that their mission in life is to better themselves and pursue their dreams while still taking time to give back to their communities.
On Thursday, September 15th, our YYC Chapter hosted their 15th monthly Third Thursday event and took advantage of some late-summer warmth with a huge celebration on one of Calgary’s best situated rooftop patios! The event proved to be a huge success with representation from all areas of the community thanks to the generous efforts of the Calgary team and their partner venue, ONE18 EMPIRE.
Club Wise aspires to be a multidimensional organization bringing together driven young professionals seeking to grow both personally and professionally. The vision of Club Wise is simple; promoting personal and professional growth and donating our time and proceeds to local charities, all united by a love of whisky.
On the evening on May 13th, earlier this year, you may have been walking on Robson Street in downtown Vancouver in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery and if you were, you would have seen a one-of-a-kind event happening. The inaugural Little Black Dress Gala put on by the Help Change My City Alliance (HCMCA) was kicking off in a big way. We were invited and so were a thousand other change-makers, all present to raise funds and awareness of impoverished youth and marginalize woman in need.
We have a unique opportunity as a community to both #dogood and #bebetter this month. A charity campaign is currently running whereby we can track our biking/jogging/(even walking), earn points, and then donate them to our charity partner Zajac Ranch for Children to help them earn a solid portion of the $25,000 that has been put up for grabs by Pacific Blue Cross.
This past Friday night brought a lively and fun filled crowd to the Waterfall Building, just a block down from Granville Island on West 2nd Ave. in Vancouver for the Pacific Club's Summer Party event. DJ Eric Carver was throwing down classic hip-hop and rap, making for a nostalgic feel at the event. A photo booth was active most of the night as well for all of the attendees.
In preparation for the Father’s Day festivities this month, UK-based clothing brand, French Connection (FCUK), partnered with Whisky Wisemen NYC for an unforgettable -- and charitable -- Pre-Father’s Day sale event “Taste and Shop for a Cause” on Saturday, June 11 from 2 to 6pm EST at FCUK’s flagship shop in NYC’s chic SoHo district.
This Spring/Summer event Club Wise decided to change up the format to bring more value to our formal event. Unlike any other event, we brought a panel of speakers to provide a broad and deep perspective, with sports and mental performance at the center of our conversation. Hosting us was RYU Apparel, a Vancouver sports apparel brand and award nominating venue space.
All too often I find myself walking past a homeless person on the street wishing I knew some way to help them. Or I will pass a half-eaten pizza in a box in the trash and think of the pounds of food we waste in NYC every day. These thoughts pass in and out of my mind quickly as I go about my normal routine and little, if any, action is ever taken. I imagine that this is true for most of us and not because we don’t truly want to help out those less fortunate and improve the streets of NYC.
