Cheers for Change! Puerto Rico Tasting benefiting Visit Rico - 9/26/18
at City Winery Nashville
- 9:00pm (Estimated End Time)
In January of 2018, a City Winery crew of 125 employees flew south to Puerto Rico to provide relief efforts for local farmers devastated by Hurricane Maria. We arrived with arms full of donated supplies, $160K in relief support, and spread across 5 farms in the mountains outside San Juan to rebuild. We arrived with unknown expectations... what we would see and what we could accomplish. We left with hearts more rejuvenated than we ever could have imagined. Although we made progress, there's still so much work to be done, and we have hope in continuing relief efforts for our brothers and sisters in Puerto Rico until all has been repaired.
