This Jack Honey Dinner Shows Why We Should Save The Bees
September marks National Honey Month, an opportunity to celebrate and promote American beekeeping, the beekeeping industry, and honey as a natural and beneficial sweetener. So, when The Bee Conservancy and Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey teamed up to host a Save The Bees Dinnerpost New York Fashion Week, one should take notice.
The intimate educational dinner held at 1 Hotel Central Park brought a small group of like-minded individuals together to a wider conversation about social and ecological issues. Being engaged with how your food is grown is an excellent way to stay curious.
Honey centric dishes and cocktail pairings such as the bee-infused Roses from Jack were served while songstress Najah Lewisof American Idol fame sang sweet melodies over discussions led by The Bee Conservancy’s Managing Director Rebecca Louie and Guillermo Fernandez, founder of The Bee Conservancy and Executive Director.
Bees lie at the heart of our survival. The buzzy pollinators are responsible for one-third of our food supply including those celebrated staples like avocados, and almond milk. However, native bee species are in decline, and are at risk of extinction due to the devastating consequences of climate change, and pesticide use. In an effort to help Save the Bees Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey is donating $50,000 towards the Bee Conservancy with the opportunity for individuals to support the organization through a silent auction now through September 30 with items including an autographed Sinatra Select bottle, a two-night staycation from the 1 Hotel Central Park, limited edition Shoe Surgeon X Jack Daniel’s Honey sneakers and more. To help support conservation efforts, 1 Hotel Central Park will continue serving the Roses from Jack cocktail complimentary for guests at two lobby tastings during National Honey Month.
