Westhaven was the site of the soldout annual Whiskey Warmer event held on Saturday. Unlike last year’s event where patrons sipped whiskey while amidst winter weather, this year the temperatures were warmer. We spoke to Stephen Wilson, national ambassador for Crown Royal who returned to the event again this year.
See our photos below of the event.
Proceeds from the Whiskey Warmer event benefit the Westhaven Foundation which is a 501-c3 non-profit organization, established by the residents of Westhaven. The mission of the foundation is to promote lifelong learning, leadership, preservation, philanthropy and environmental awareness within Westhaven and the greater Franklin community.
