2021 Commonwealth Bash @ Base249

May 9th of last year the Lexington Bourbon Society was scheduled to assist The Living Arts & Science Center (LASC) with their largest annual fundraiser, H’Artful of Fun. As you are aware, the pandemic kept this and numerous other events used to fund non-profits from occurring. As the Center for Disease Control has begun to ease restrictions, it’s time to assist LASC return to doing what it has so successfully for central Kentucky for over 53 years, engaging our community through hands-on and interactive instruction in arts and science directly from professional educators and active artists and scientists. The cost associated with providing collaborative experiences for the community, educational programs in schools, community centers, and other venues as well as free programming for all members of the Central Kentucky community are quite challenging enough under normal circumstances.

After a year of being closed down due to the pandemic, this place of creativity is slowly coming back to life. The Center started a YouTube channel during COVID to try and stay connected to its patrons and audience. However, with classes, art shows and events all canceled, the Living Arts and Science Center is facing a revenue loss of close to $500,000.

We have partnered with Maker’s Mark Distillery and BaseHere to hold our annual Commonwealth Bash to assist in off-setting those losses. The event will be Saturday, June 5th, 6:30-9:00 pm, in the parking lot of Base249 at 249 E. Main St., Lexington, KY, 40507. The event will be outdoors and with COVID precautions.

The evening will consist of live music by David “Chill” Napier of Lexington’s own Driftwood Gypsy, live and silent auctions, food by J. Render’s BBQ, a Maker’s Mark cocktail competition featuring some of the region’s best mixologist with awards for both Guests Favorite and Judges Favorite, select KY distilleries sampling their spirits, and much more.
