On April 24th, over 80 guests joined the ETM Associates for their 2nd Annual Wine Tasting Tour of Union Square! Participants tasted a variety of wines from all over the globe on their tour, which began at Amsterdam Billiards and continued on to a sake tasting at Union Square Wines and tastings of three wines each at Bottlerocket Wine & Spirit and Wined Up before ending with a complimentary glass of wine and raffle drawing at the "after-party" at Vintage Irving. The tour raised over $3,200 for the after-school band program at ETM partner school PS 76 in the Bronx, the ETM Associates' "adopted school" for the 2009-2010 school year.
Special thanks to all of the wonderful stores and wine bars who participated in this year's tasting, as well as the ETM Associates Steering Committee, the Tour Benefit Committee, and the ETM volunteers and staff who helped make this such a great event!
