8th Annual International Black Jar Honey Tasting & Cocktail Event

June 13, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The Center for Honeybee Research’s 8th Annual International Black Jar Honey Tasting and Cocktail Event begins on Thursday, June 13, 2019, at 5:30pm, just about the time our panel of celebrity judges are completing their mission to choose the Best Honey In The World from submissions from around the globe. Attendees will also get to taste national and international honeys, bid in our silent auction, mingle with the judges who include Mayor Esther Manheimer, internationally reknown Chef Katie Button of Curate, singer Kat Williams and more, snack, drink and schmooze, all to the sounds of live music. The event takes place at the Renaissance Hotel where the Center for Honeybee Research, beneficiary of this fundraiser, maintains beehives on the roof. This 8th Annual event marks the same number of years that the Center’s research into colony collapse disorder has been underway – possibly the longest running such project anywhere. CCD is threatening the lives of honeybees everywhere, so supporting the Center’s work is critically important, and a delicious, pleasant way to do that is planned for all attendees.
