Join me for my birthday with a purpose!

Tuesday, December 8th, 2020
6:00pm EST

You’re invited to my “virtual winetasting” birthday party! With my birthday coming up on December 17th, I’ve decided to host a virtual gathering to taste some delicious Italian wines and burrata while also introducing you all to Jhpiego—an organization dear to my heart for many reasons, not least of which is my involvement as a member of its International Advisory Board!

About the Party

In addition to hearing about Jhpiego’s work from President/CEO Leslie Mancuso, comedian-sommelier Patrick Ney will guide us through a virtual wine tasting. We’ll swirl, taste and enjoy some valuable “winefotainment.” This wine tasting will be for all levels, so please don’t feel like you need to come with any advanced questions about tannins!

With your RSVP, you will receive the wine and cheese we’ll be tasting as a group. Please provide your shipping address (not a PO box) via your Paperless Post invitation, and delivery will be coordinated leading up to the party.
