Virtual Grand Tastings Was a Grand Success!
Tuesday, May 19, 2020
The pandemic kept us from gathering in person for Grand Tastings XXVI, but it didn’t stop hundreds of supporters from joining our virtual event held on Monday, May 18th.
Many thanks to all who participated! As the donations continue to come in, we are closer to reaching our goal. Special thanks to surprise guest Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill for kicking off the live event and for her ongoing advocacy on behalf of victims of domestic violence.
In addition to the generosity of our donors, the success of the evening would not have been possible without the support of our entire Grand Tastings community including: our gracious sponsors; the JBWS Board; the JBWS Advisory Council; the Grand Tastings XXVI committee led by chairperson Kelley Kurtzman, VP of Sales & Service Centers at Verizon; Corporate Honoree, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP; Philanthropic Honoree, Simon Quick Advisors, LLC; our client speaker who courageously shared her story of survival; the Grand Tastings XXVI chefs and vendors; event auctioneer, Gary Fisch of Gary’s Wine & Marketplace; and the event production team who pulled it all together.
We invite you all to save the date –
May 17, 2021 – for Grand Tastings XXVII
to be held at the beautiful Pleasantdale Château in West Orange.
