In the aftermath of the devastating Hurricane Harvey, we have been so moved to discover many of our winery and distributor partners are offering monetary assistance to the relief effort. This month, join us as we feature and support just a few of these partners. Each wine will be perfectly paired with a casual taste by Chef Mark Schmidt.
Dallas chefs and bartenders will cook dinner and serve drinks, and there will be live music, too. "Our goal is to provide Mercy Chefs with provisions to cook for those at the heart of the many widespread areas devastated by Hurricane Harvey, as well as collecting donations of necessary basic needs for the countless families and animals impacted by Harvey's destruction through The Cajun Navy and the Houston SPCA," organizers said. Tickets are $65, and 100 percent of money raised goes to charities.

See the full list of participating businesses here.
