THE CONFERENCE | The First in Texas
Modeled on the wildly popular Manhattan Cocktail Classic and New Orleans' Tales of the Cocktail event, San Antonio's own Cocktail Conference was the first of its kind in Texas. Every year, we bring together top bartenders and cocktail aficionados for four days of educational seminars, guided tastings and cocktail parties. Conference proceeds benefit HeartGift San Antonio and ChildSafe.
TOP SHELF CAUSE | Support for HeartGift & ChildSafe
HeartGift is a group of surgeons, pediatric cardiologists, medical personnel, volunteers, and host families dedicated to providing lifesaving heart surgery to disadvantaged children living in developing countries where specialized treatment is scarce or non-exsistent. Since its establishment in 2000, HeartGift has helped more than 120 children in 22 countries on five continents.
ChildSafe, Bexar County's only Children's Advocacy Center, brings help and healing to children who have been abused and neglected. The organization also provides a broad array of services starting with forensic interviews, case management, crisis intervention and emergency services. Additionally, ChildSafe provides counseling, support services, and more to children and their protective family members. ChildSafe helps restore trust and dignity to children traumatized by sexual abuse and physical abuse and neglect, and helps the protective family members who suffer along with the abused child.
The San Antonio Cocktail Conference operates as a program of Houston Street Charities, a 501(c)(3). The mission of Houston Street Charities is to benefit needy children, increase educational opportunities for the community, provide healthcare for those who cannot afford it, and support and enhance other public charities.
