We are delighted to announce that Walsh Whiskey — known for its Writers’ Tears & The Irishman brands — will be supporting Jack & Jill through various fundraising initiatives throughout 2020.
The first event is a Facebook livestream raffle of the founders’ – Bernard & Rosemary Walsh – personal collection of a complete set of Writers’ Tears Vintage Cask Strength, super-premium, triple-distilled whiskeys on Thursday 9th July 2020. The complete collection of 10 bottles would be worth at least between €1,500 and €2,000 at auction, however participants in the raffle will have the chance to win it and support Jack & Jill for just €16 per ticket.
Each ticket sold will buy 1 hour of special home nursing care and respite for a child and family supported by The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation.
The collection comprises 10 bottles representing every vintage released to date between 2011 and 2019 and including a bottle of the, yet to be released, 2020 Vintage. Each bottle is signed personally by both Bernard and Rosemary Walsh, presented in an individually stylised case and with personal letters of thanks to the winners from both the Walsh’s and Carmel Doyle, CEO of The Jack & Jill Foundation. If the winner is based in Ireland they will have the option of meeting Bernard and Rosemary when they collect their prize.
Carmel Doyle, our CEO said: “While our fundraising has been flattened with so much cancelled by Covid-19, the families we support rely on us more than ever. I want to thank Bernard and Rosemary Walsh for spearheading this international community effort which will fund home nursing care hours and respite for our Jack & Jill families. So from our community to yours, thank you all so much.”
