On Monday night Philadelphia Eagles Safety Malcolm Jenkins & The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation (TMJF) held the first annual Blitz, Bow Ties & Bourbon event to raise funds for expanding youth programs in the Philadelphia area.
The event was held at the newly renovated Union Trust Finley Catering event space, which recently underwent a conversion from a steakhouse to a really nice event hall. The evening began with a VIP cocktail party on the mezzanine level, where guests interacted with several of the Eagles players including Malcolm Jenkins, Connor Barwin, Jeremy Maclin, Mark Sanchez, while also noshing on savory treats from The Treemont Restaurant, Tradestone Confections, Sbraga and The Farm and Fisherman. Brian Bevilacqua, a bourbon master at Bank & Bourbon, gave guests a mini master classes on the understanding and taste of bourbon.
An hour later the general admission guests entered Union Trust to join the party, and dance to the tunes of Valarie Adams & the Dimensions. There was also an extensive silent auction to raise additional funds for some of the programs TMJF funds including after school programs, scholarships and a football camp.
