A Special Thank You to William Grant & Sons and your participating USA Distributors!!!! Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum for 2014 raised over $36,000!!!

The Aleethia Foundation just completed the fifth year partnership with William Grant & Sons in a charitable promotion to benefit the Aleethia Foundation’s programs supporting the wounded/injured/ill service members and their families.   During various months of 2014, a donation was made to the Aleethia Foundation for every case of Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum sold by their participating USA distributors in Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC, Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee and Texas.

Aleethia is dedicated to helping the wounded/injured/ill service members from all over the USA who are recovering at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center-Bethesda. The aid is given in many ways, including “Friday Night Dinners,” therapeutic recreation, assistive technology and financial aid.  Since Aleethia is a small volunteer organization, we are able to provide direct and immediate assistance to help with the basic needs of the wounded/injured/ill service members.

THANK YOU Louisiana! The Republic National Distributing Company for Louisiana held a special check presentation which represented the first quarter donation of the partial proceeds from every bottle of “Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum” sold in Louisiana. The check presentation reception included the “Victory Belles” from the National World War II Museum in New Orleans.

“SIP FOR A CAUSE!”  On June 9th, a special Sailor Jerry Happy Hour was hosted by Washington Wholesale Distributors and Sailor Jerry at Cantina Marina on the waterfront.  It was a fun filled evening of toasting those who have fought for their country, a raffle and a silent auction which benefitted the Aleethia Foundation, an air brush tattoo artist, signature cocktails and more.  A huge thank you to Washington Wholesale Distributors for their continuous support since 2010!

The ABC Board of the State of Virginia participated in the “2014 Sailor Jerry” program to benefit the Aleethia Foundation’s programs supporting the wounded/injured/ill service members recovering at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.  Jeff Painter, Chairman of the Virginia Department of ABC and Reed Davis, District Manager of Virginia & South Carolina with William Grant & Sons joined 36 wounded/injured/ill service members and their 49 family members and guests for Aleethia’s “Friday Night Dinner” held on September 12th.   Chairman Painter met and spoke with every service member during the evening and presented each with an “Office of the ABC Board” challenge coin.  Reed visited each table greeting every guest and distributing various “Sailor Jerry” giveaways.  Since 2012, ABC stores of Virginia have raised over $23,000 for the Aleethia Foundation.     We wish to thank the ABC stores of Virginia for their efforts in making this year’s program a great success and we look forward to our continuing partnership!!!

The Aleethia Foundation greatly appreciates the continuous support of William Grant & Sons, their participating USA distributors and all involved in this wonderful fundraising program.   THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!
