Special Event


We are excited to announce the first co-sponsored event between SMPS and the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Northern Virginia Post. Get in the "spirits" of meeting new faces at this bourbon tasting, distillery tour, and networking event. Both organizations have seen the synergy between our respective groups over the years, and this event represents an opportunity to finally make introductions at both the Board and member level in an informal setting. A special thank you to our event sponsors, Clark Construction Group and Polu Kai, and drink sponsor, GORDON!

Not a bourbon drinker? We’ve got you covered with an open bar stocked with wine and beer!

We will have a 50/50 raffle to support the scholarship programs for both SMPS DC and SAME NoVA Post.

Falls Church Distillers’ owner Michael Paluzzi is a second-generation Air Force veteran that proudly supports Operation Turbo, a nonprofit dedicated to sending care boxes to deployed troops. Michael will be giving a quick tour of the bourbon distillery at 5PM before the tasting.

Join us and enjoy light appetizers, great spirits, and even better company. This debut event is expected to sell out!

What You'll Learn

In addition to business networking, the event will offer a brief overview by the SAME NoVA and SMPS DC Chapter Presidents highlighting the benefits offered to their members and how their respective organizations could benefit the membership of the other association. All donations for this event will be split between each society’s scholarships. 50/50 raffle tickets will be sold.
