Four Roses will host its 12th annual Four Roses Flower Hour on Friday, February 8 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Nanz & Kraft Florists, 141 Breckenridge Lane. The special Valentine’s Day shopping and Bourbon tasting event benefits the American Heart Association and will allow you to enjoy bourbon and complimentary hors d’ oeurves with Four Roses Master Distiller Brent Elliot.

Nanz & Kraft has prepared a special “Go Red for Women” flower arrangement, available for purchase during the entire month of February in-store or at Nanz & Kraft will donate $10 of each “Go Red for Women” flower arrangement purchase to the American Heart Association.

Flower Hour also features live jazz entertainment from Swing Theory and a silent auction with an array of items, including Limited Edition Four Roses bottles, a Nanz & Kraft Valentine’s bouquet, tickets to 2019 Louisville Heart Ball, a Cellar Door Chocolates tasting package and more, with proceeds benefiting the American Heart Association.

“Flower Hour provides the perfect opportunity to kick off your weekend and donate to a good cause, all with a Bourbon in-hand,” said Brent Elliott, Four Roses Master Distiller. “Each February, I look forward to spending the evening mingling with our guests and completing Valentine’s Day shopping at this event.”

Last year, the event raised nearly $5,000 for the American Heart Association.

“Heart disease and stroke are the number one and number five killers, respectively, of all Americans. Locally, these diseases claim more than 2,600 lives each year,” said Karrie Harper, American Heart Association Go Red for Women Director. “It means a great deal to us to partner with Four Roses and Nanz & Kraft to raise awareness about heart health, and much needed funds for our community during the Flower Hour event.”

A suggested cash donation of $10 will be collected at the door, with a $20 VIP ticket option to include a gift pack from Four Roses, Nanz & Kraft, American Heart Association, Heine Brother’s Coffee and Cellar Door Chocolates, valued at $40. Up to five select VIP guests have the chance to win a voucher for a Nanz & Kraft dozen roses bouquet and Four Roses Small Batch.

Attendees are encouraged to wear red in the spirit of Valentine’s Day and heart health awareness.
