When asked about the Moonshine Festival, Andrews Entertainment District President Stephen de Haan said by "providing guests with a true moonshine experience, we are thrilled not only to feature vast varieties and flavors of moonshine but also to host experts providing four informative and interactive seminars at one event. The Andrews Moonshine Festival will feature everything there is to know about moonshine and so much more."

And all this moonshine sampling isn't just for fun. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Shepherd Center, a private, not-for-profit hospital devoted to the medical care and rehabilitation of people with spinal cord injury and disease, acquired brain injury, multiple sclerosis and other neuromuscular problems.
