A Different Breed of Fundraising

As many of you long-time readers know, I'm already a big fan of Amra's and their other establishment, Tobacco Road. This is SUCH a very cool event they're hosting this week.

I have some other commitments on Thursday (that post coming soon), but if I'm able to do both, this is totally making my to-do list:

The charity organization called Wine to Water, as seen on Larry King, raises funds through wine tastings to be able to help 3rd world countries find healthy clean drinking water sources for their villages.

On Thursday July 23, come to Amra's after work or around 6:30 to help support this awesome and worthy cause!

There will be free wine. (Yes, a full tasting and free full glasses, too.)
There will be free light appetizers.
There is no cover charge, no ticket price and no suggested donation.
• There may be a silent auction.
• There will be friends new and old.
• The event will last 2 or 3 hours.
• Stay as long as you'd like.
• And feel free to bring people with you!

Wine To Water is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit aid organization focused on providing clean water to needy people around the world. Over 1 billion people in the world today lack access to adequate water and sanitation. We are devoted to fighting this epidemic.Wine symbolizes fortune in our society. Our goal is to give the fortunate population an opportunity to fight for those who can’t fight for themselves.

PS - I was reading up on the Wine to Water bio webpage, and the founder is a former Raleigh, NC bartender who came up with this concept. DOUBLE awesome.
