Positive Strides held its premier fundraising event, Bourbon, Bowties & Cigars, on Friday, June 2nd, at Annapolis Waterfront Hotel. More than 160 guests indulged in the finest bourbons and cigars, while enjoying heavy hors d'oeuvres, provided by local restaurants, and bidding on an incredible array of silent auction items.

The highlight of this year's event was the announcement of the First Annual Positive Strides Perseverance Awards, which honors two athletes (one male and one female) in recognition of their determination, courage, and perseverance to improve and make everyone around them better. The recipients were Kian Olexo and Jordan Welch.

Bourbon, Bowties & Cigars raised more than $42,000 to benefit the nonprofit organization. The funds will assist in the expansion of Positive Stride's Education Seminar Program, which covers primary and secondary injury prevention, mental health, the dangers of opioids, life after athletics, and more.
