Guests also enjoyed multiple carving stations which were each paired with bourbon samples, as well as a singe-barrel tasting bar with bourbon-aged lager brewed by Flavor Philadelphia partner Saint Benjamin exclusively for Bank & Bourbon. 

Executive Pastry Chef Amanda Kaewvichien’s dessert table was mouth wateringly spectacular. Proceeds from the event went to DonorsChoose.org–a charity where teachers request classroom materials and donors match them.
