Our partnership with Heaven Hill Distilleries is vital to our mission and fight against ALS. Each year Heaven Hill donates a part of the proceeds from the annual Parker’s Heritage Collection whiskey to fight Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, better known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease.” The Bardstown, Kentucky-based distiller releases these special bottles every September, with $10 from each bottle to be donated to the ALS Association’s “Parker’s Promise of Hope Fund.”
“Parker Beam Promise of Hope”
We also would like to send love and sympathy to those who have lost someone this year.
