Celebrate National Cocktail Day with Valentine

It's National Cocktail Day and to celebrate, the team at Valentine Distilling in Ferndale is partnering with Hospice of Michigan for a very special event.

The second annual Hospice of Michigan's Barley, BBQ & Beats fundraiser event is set for May 23 at Shed Three at the Eastern Market in Detroit. Tickets are $40 pre-sale and $45 at the door. Proceeds from the event will benefit the nonprofit's Open Access Program, which insures all who need end-of-life care in Michigan have access to it, regardless of their age, diagnosis, or ability to pay.

Megan LaCross, director of philanthropy for Hospice of Michigan; Heather DeLiso, general manager of Valentine Distilling, and Rifino Valentine, founder and president of Valentine Distilling stopped by the Fox2 News studios to preview the event. Watch the video above and click here for more information about the event.
