An online wine auction to benefit New Yorkers still suffering from Hurricane Sandy – March 25 – April 7, 2013
Everyone around the world has heard of the destruction that Hurricane Sandy has caused both physically and emotionally on the people of New York, New Jersey, and other areas of the Northeast.
DeVine Intervention is a fundraising wine auction organized by Union Square Hospitality Group with Wine Director and Master Sommelier, John Ragan, enabling colleagues from the wine community to band together to help New Yorkers during a time of extraordinary need. All proceeds will benefit the Hurricane Sandy relief efforts of the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City.
“After Hurricane Sandy, the community of NYC restaurant employees worked hard to get our restaurants and our lives back to normal, but many of our fellow New Yorkers are still suffering from the aftermath of Sandy,” said USHG Wine Director John Ragan. “Although the storm may have since slipped out of the headlines, this is when many New Yorkers need our help the most.”
Danny Meyer, CEO and Founder of USHG, said “We are proud to invite the wine community to join in the ongoing Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts. We’re grateful for the exceptional donations we’ve received, and are excited that the selection of special lots will give enthusiasts a chance to accumulate wonderful wines, while giving back by helping those who were hardest hit by the storm.”
The Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to innovative public-private partnerships and programs for the City of New York, is accepting financial donations to support hurricane relief efforts. One hundred percent of donations are being dispersed to relief efforts and organizations. The Mayor’s Fund is also committed to longer-term rebuilding and restoration efforts including assistance for displaced families, schools, small businesses, nonprofit organizations, parks and other impacted groups.
A large number of wineries and businesses have joined in the effort to lift up, give back and rebuild the communities in which they serve and love.
Bid on exceptional wines and spirits from around the world, dinners, wine getaways and more. Most of all…help rebuild the lives of those affected in NYC.
