Happy Harbor Comics is once again hosting a SCOTCH TASTING and auction for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada!
Happy Harbor Comics, Edmonton's largest and only award-winning comics retailer, is dedicated to actively participating in and contributing to our community. Our Scotch Tasting events play a significant part in this initiative by raising funds and support of local organizations, and this event is raising funds for the LLSC!
Each Scotch Tasting is also an opportunity to engage with our city's scotch-loving afficionados in an event that is both informative and entertaining. And there's always a thematic twist that will entice veteran tasters, while welcoming newcomers.
— VERSUS —
It's Scotland vs. The World! At our first Scotch Tasting event of 2016 we're pitting 3 tartan-toting Scotches against 3 international Whiskeys in our ultimate multi-sensory challenge. Who will be the victor and crowned the best drink?
Meanwhile, 2 teams of comic superheroes will face off alongside our drink selections in a battle of Enlisted Scotch vs. Vigilante Whiskey, featuring Iron Man, Black Widow, and Batman against Captain America, Agent 13 (Sharon Carter), and Superman, respectively. This will be a battle of brains and taste-buds, as guests attempt to match each hero to their preferred beverage, while collecting all 6 of the exclusive Superhero Trading Cards that have been custom designed and illustrated by local artists Daniel Schneider and Tracey Risser for attendees of this event only.
Whisky and Comics co-founders and bloggers, Lydia Calhoun and Steve Beam, will be the guest presenters tasked with guiding the evening's fantastic feats of Scotch tasting. Voracious comic readers, and experts in all things Scotch, Lydia and Steve are up for this challenge.
ON THE BLOCK
The contest doesn't end with the Scotch. Guests will also get the chance to bid against one another in a silent auction featuring unique and enticing items donated by generous individuals and a variety of local businesses and organizations. Among the donations on the block will be an extra-special item comparable to the authentic Flash TV series prop ring that was auctioned during one of our 2015 Scotch Tasting events.
In Support of
TEAM IN TRAINING
Our upcoming event will Team in Training. 100% of all Auction proceeds go directly to Team in Training, as well as 80% of ticket sales.
