A little heartwarming news for Valentine’s Day РFour Roses and Nanz & Kraft Florists hosted the 11th annual Four Roses Flower Hour event on Friday, February 9, raising nearly $5,000 to benefit the American Heart Association.

Four Roses Flower Hour provided an opportunity to take care of Valentine’s Day shopping while sipping award-winning Bourbon, enjoying complimentary hors d’oeuvres and live jazz music, with Four Roses Master Distiller Brent Elliott and Senior Brand Ambassador Al Young.

“It means a great deal to us to partner with Four Roses and Nanz & Kraft to raise awareness about heart health during American Heart Month,” said Kelsey Radcliffe, American Heart Association. “As heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, it is wonderful to see how much we’re able to raise during Flower Hour every year.”

Flower Hour also featured a silent auction with an array of items, including a few Limited Edition Four Roses bottlings, a Nanz & Kraft Valentine’s bouquet, tickets to the 2018 Louisville Heart Ball and more, with proceeds benefitting the American Heart Association.

“We all had a great time celebrating the event in its 11th year and look forward to continuing this partnership for many years to come,” said Brent Elliott, Four Roses Master Distiller.

The Nanz & Kraft “Go Red for Women” flower arrangement, including a bottle of Four Roses Small Batch, will be available for purchase through the month of February in store or online. Nanz & Kraft will donate $10 of each “Go Red for Women” flower arrangement purchased to the American Heart Association.
