Peppermill Hosts Bacon Bourbon and Brews
CARE Chest’s annual fundraising event puts a creative and tasty twist on helping northern Nevadans in need

Bacon, Bourbon and Brews, CARE Chest of Sierra Nevada’s annual fundraiser, has found a new home this year in the Peppermill Resort’s Tuscany Ballroom, Saturday, June 13 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. The event features everyone’s favorite ingredient – bacon. 

This year marks the third annual event, which is one of CARE Chest’s main fundraisers. CARE Chest is a non-profit organization that delivers medical resources in the Reno-Tahoe and surrounding communities to people who are under-insured or cannot afford them. 

“We’re excited to host an event where we’ll be able to give back to the Reno community while showcasing the area’s local breweries and distilleries .,” said Billy Paganetti, General Manager at Peppermill Reno. 

Most  known for showing off its star ingredient, the event pairs local brews with a delicious bacon-infused menu created by Peppermill’s chefs. Guests can also enjoy specialty bourbon cocktails, tastings at the bourbon garden provided by an array of distilleries, live entertainment and a silent auction. 

VIP tickets are $75 and include early entry, reserved seating and more; general admission tickets are $50.  Tickets are available online at
