ALS Benefit & Vintage Cult-Cabernet Dinner

Saturday, April 21st at 7:30pm

Hello Friends,

At this point in our lives, we have all been effected by the loss of loved ones. Speaking for myself, when I’ve watched those close to me pass far too soon by unfortunate causes I find myself looking for ways to give back- to improve the quality of life of those afflicted, and to promote research toward cures. So, it’s with great pleasure I present this wonderful opportunity to help a charity near and dear to my heart: Project ALS.

ALS is an awful, debilitating condition that took my Uncle Lee’s father (my Grandpa) and my finest friend Guy LaFarrera’s wife Yvonne. Guy is one of life’s finest treasures, and it is he that reached deep into his collection of wines and personally donated them for you to enjoy. In due course, Chef John Thomas has really outdone himself pairing these fabulous old, cellared wines with an impeccable four course menu. Due to the limited availability of these wines, this dinner will be held to 22 seats with $100 from each seat going to Project ALS. Project ALS is behind research strategies that will lead to the first effective treatments and a cure for ALS.

If you are fortunate enough to be able to join us, I urge you to sign up for this experience. Come sit with us for this intimate evening of sharing wine and stories for our last fundraiser at 32 East.

Drink Well & God Bless,

John Bates
