Founded by friends Shaun Roberts and Mark Matuszek, Whiskey & Bizz a monthly event focused on educating, networking, friendships, bonding over our favorite spirits, all the while trying to strengthen our community by donating proceeds to a local non-profit. All net proceeds raised from their events go to benefit The Lovely Project – a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, headquartered in Orlando, Florida. The next get together after the Orlando Whiskey Festival is August 3rd.
The Lovely Project is a Non-Profit Organization, headquartered in Orlando, Florida, that exists to empower girls by providing them with tools, education and peer-mentorship for living a purposeful, productive life. Every day in America, girls face a mountain of seemingly impossible hardships that exist because of their gender. Seven out of ten girls ages 15-17 won’t even bother to participate in normal, everyday activities due to a lack of self-worth. This void that so many young girls experience can be an unfortunate result of family dysfunction, abuse, bullying, poverty, impossible beauty ideals, learning disabilities and obesity. A staggering 75% of girls with low self-esteem reported engaging in negative activities like cutting, bullying, smoking, drinking, or disordered eating.
The Lovely Project invites girls ages 11-19 to experience a loving and caring environment where they are taught about their immense Value, powerful Voice and unstoppable Valor.
The primary goal of this organization is to empower young girls in Central Florida through programs that are designed to teach them:
1.) That they are valuable assets to our culture and society.
2.) Their ideas and opinions matter and their voices have power.
3.) They have the potential and ability to effect positive change within their families and community, even when faced with intense difficulty. You can read more about The Lovely Project at www.thelovelyproject.org.
The Orlando Whiskey Festival is the primary fundraising event Whiskey & Bizz will host this year to benefit The Lovely Project. 100% of the net proceeds raised from this event will go directly towards funding the programs and resources that keep The Lovely Project functioning in Central Florida.
