Director | Good Bourbon for a Good Cause
There are a handful of whiskey charities out there that stand out. One of them is Good Bourbon for a Good Cause. GBGC sells limited release Garrison Brothers bourbons to raise money for industry professionals, raise awareness of Texan open spaces, and offer qualified veterans a good place to land.
GBGC puts Texas open spaces and environment at a priority, endeavoring to support or fund programs that preserve such vital locations as the Balmorhea Pool, in Balmorhea State park, one of the largest spring-fed freshwater pools in the world. Their work with veterans helps them find the assistance they require while finding meaningful work that puts them in harm’s way to help rescue and support disaster victims. Finally, GBGC raises funds to provide members of the hospitality industry with the healthcare they need.
McCamant embodies the vision of the charity she runs: good bourbon can change the world.
