Come See Me in New York at Leket Whisky Night, Tuesday, November 19
Leket Israel is Israel's national food bank and largest food rescue network for the poor.
To benefit Leket, the American Friends of Leket are having a fine whisky tasting and auction on Tuesday, November 19, at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, 36 Battery Pl, New York, NY. The event will feature rare and aged spirits, gourmet kosher catering, expert whisky sommeliers, a fine whisky and spirits auction, and more.
General admission tickets are $200 each and still available. The exclusive VIP tasting, at $360 a ticket, is sold out.
I'll be there to meet and greet, and comment on the various whiskeys on offer, both for tasting and bidding. An individual supporter of the charity is donating rare whiskeys from his personal collection for the auction. Call 201-331-0070 for more information or to purchase tickets.
I hope to see you there.
