Last week I held a fundraiser event, Pinot for Pink: A Brooklyn Wine Party , to raise money for The Pink Agenda, the charity I’m running the NYC Marathon for this November. I want to thank all of those who attended the event and supported my cause. We spent the evening sipping on wine, chatting about Brooklyn, toured the winery, and even had a little silent auction featuring items from some of my favorite restaurants and businesses.
Much thanks to all the businesses that donated to the auction– Seersucker Brooklyn, Arthur on Smith, Local Roots NYC, Madiba, Stonehome Winebar, Waterfront Wines and Spirits, Leslie Lewis of Sangha Yoga Shala, Victoria’s Secret (especially Brette Ehrenpreis), and home/made. Also thank you to my lovely photographer for the night, Nneka Obiudu. And of course, special thanks to Brooklyn Winery for having us and donating 10 percent of the evening’s proceeds to The Pink Agenda.
It was a fabulous evening, and I can’t wait for the next one! Of course, I’m already planning it, so save the date… September 26th. For more info about my fundraising efforts, please visit my FirstGiving page here.
