The pandemic has changed everything – and this year’s Islands of Brilliance annual fundraiser, Colors and Chords, is no different. They’ve pivoted to a Sunday Celebration and still want to include the always popular C2 Bottle Pull.

Islands of Brilliance is a learning experience developed specifically for children and young adults on the autism spectrum. Their programming is rooted in art, design, and STEAM-based curriculum. Learn more about IOB here.

But our past bottle donation requests relied heavily on bars and restaurants, who have their own challenges during this difficult time.

So we’re turning to YOU, our loyal and fabulous Clients, Talent and Friends.

We need 200 (unopened) bottles of liquor and wine donated for the 2021 event in order to raise $4000 for Islands of Brilliance.

To facilitate this, we’ve partnered with our friends at Great Lakes Distillery to offer you a safe and fun bottle donation drop-off location. Bring a bottle in, or buy one there!

As a grateful thank you for each bottle donated, you get a ticket good for $2 off any craft cocktail that evening, or $3 off any GLD bottle purchase!

Let’s toast to Milwaukee’s outstanding and generous creative and business communities!

Can’t make it to the Bottle Drop? Donate cash here to purchase bottles. Want to donate a bottle but can’t get to GLD that night? Email us at and we’ll arrange for pick-up or drop-off!


Many Thanks to the 2021 Bottle Drop & Pull Partners!
