Mark Bohanan—owner and executive chef of Bohanan’s Prime Steaks & Seafood, and creator of San Antonio Cocktail Conference—presented a check for $100,000 to HeartGift San Antonio and ChildSafe on Wednesday at the Sheraton Gunther downtown.
Both of these organizations are focused on saving the lives of children. The San Antonio Cocktail Conference 2014, a four-day event was held here from Jan. 16-19 and offered education and celebration of craft cocktails and spirits.
“It’s incredible to see the generous support of our community partners and friends. The contributions of everyone, including our presenters and attendees, are the true backbone of this event and we simply could not have come this far without their continued support. This donation is especially meaningful as it allows two organizations to provide their services to children in need, a cause that is so near and dear to my heart. It is with great joy that we present this check today.”
Bohanan was joined by Charlie Deacon, chairman of the board of HeartGift San Antonio; and Kim Abernethy, president and CEO of ChildSafe.
