City Winery Boston was happy to be a part of Eat Your Words: A Tasting Event To Benefit 826 Boston on Monday, March 26th. The event was presented by Ruberto, Israel & Weiner, The Boston Restaurant Group and Restaurant Trends.
Every ticket purchased to the Eat Your Words event supported 826 Boston, a nonprofit youth writing and publishing organization that empowers traditionally underserved students ages 6-18 to find their voices, tell their stories, and gain communication skills to succeed in school and in life. The organization was founded in 2007. The event raised $42,000 to donate to 826 Boston!
