DuBlasé whiskey founder and CEO, Darrin Eakins, is collaborating with Jacksonville‘s KIPP Voice Academy to donate Christmas presents to a local family with six kids this holiday season via a new charitable company initiative called “Christmas Kindness.”
A private ceremony with KIPP Voice Academy’s acting School Leader, Richele Woods, along with the family and DuBlasé’s founder/CEO are meeting this week to exchange the charitable holiday gifts and donations. “I believe it’s important to prioritize charity work and community involvement. Giving back is a core focus of our company culture at DuBlasé and this initiative is something we plan to do annually moving forward,” said Eakins, who is a serial entrepreneur who was raised in Jacksonville.
‘Tis the season to give according to Eakins. “This city has done so much for me over the years and I believe it’s only right that I give back. As a small, black-owned business, we’ve been blessed to achieve great success thanks to many local supporters and now we’re paying it forward,” Eakins said.
Eakins is a serial entrepreneur and founder of DuBlasé whiskey, a premium whiskey brand founded and based in Jacksonville. ” As a company, we’ve had a lot of fun this holiday season creating festive holiday cocktails and dessert dishes, but doing this Christmas donation is by far the most special. I hope this contribution brings true joy to this family this Christmas,” Eakins explained.
