Recently announced, Ogden’s Own Distillery has partnered with Deborah Czeresko, world-renowned glass artist and Season 1 winner of Netflix’s “Blown Away” to create a one-of-a-kind piece of glass art for a giveaway to benefit the Utah LGBTQ+ Community. The giveaway is of the glass art piece, “Morph,” an abstract, one-of-a-kind glass decanter plus four matching rocks glasses. The “Morph,” handmade, abstract-style glass decanter set was modeled after Czeresko’s original work from Season 1 of Blown Away.
The best part about Morph and the collaboration between Ogden’s Own and Czeresko is that it centers around a great cause. One hundred percent of the proceeds raised for Morph, which will be crowdsourced by the participants in the opportunity drawing, will be donated evenly across two local organizations that provide support for the Utah LGBTQ+ community: the Utah PRIDE Center and Equality Utah.
Czeresko has a close connection with both the state of Utah and the LGBTQ+ community, and Ogden’s Own has proven to be a consistent force in supporting both freedom of expression as well as the local community, especially the food & beverage industry as well as the LGBTQ+ population. This joint effort presents any fans of Ogden’s Own or Deborah Czeresko with a rare opportunity to both support a great cause and potentially win a one-of-a-kind artwork that any glass art collector or spirits aficionado would love.
“Supporting and celebrating diversity and inclusion has always been at the core of what Ogden’s Own represents,” said Steve Conlin, CEO of Ogden’s Own Distillery. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Deborah, a passionate advocate for the LGBTQ+ community who is recognized worldwide for her glass blowing talent, to create something truly special for our fans that will make a positive impact with our local organizations.”
Valued at $8,000, any fans 21+ years of age can enter to win Morph, with the option to donate funds towards the two aforementioned charitable organizations, Utah PRIDE Center and Equality Utah. Ogden’s Own’s public relations team will be facilitating the opportunity drawing, with the winners selected at random and notified of their win via email. Morph will then be shipped to them directly.
