It’s about getting physical this week. Nonprofit organization Food Tank organized its own fundraiser where Broadway dancers got eventgoers to burn a few calories in the name of health. Wine lovers should head out to a silent auction where proceeds go to a group dedicated to the wellness of people with disabilities. So go ahead and sip wine and help those in need.
- Broadway dancers and NYC food power houses came out on Wednesday to raise funds for nonprofit Food Tank. The dancers were tapped to lead an interactive dance workout party while snacks and drink were passed out. The James Beard Foundation, Edible, Stumptown Coffee, the New York City Food Policy Center and more came out in support of the cause. Food Tank devotes its time to finding sustainable ways to fight hunger and obesity as well as food waste.
- Cheers to sipping fine wines in the name of helping others. This Saturday, sommeliers and all wine aficionados come together at Wine On Wheels to benefit Wheeling Forward, an organization dedicated to bettering the lives of people disabilities. Food Republic contributor Chad Walsh is among the 90 sommeliers at NYC the event. A silent auction of over 200 wines is also on the agenda. Tickets are available here.
