Thank you NYC and Chicago!

For
the fourth year in a row, PEPY’s NYC event has featured some of the
best wines in the world from Metropolis Wine Merchants, an amazing jazz
band, and the best loft in town.  Many thanks to PEPY’s supporters and
friends who came out to join the event and create the great atmosphere
we always seem to have at these events.  Special highlights this year
included a chef in from Italy who helped with the food, special
acoustic performance by 2am club,
and, as always, some AMAZING volunteers who helped us make the night a
success.  Many thanks to Pramod, Celso, and Pino for arranging the
event and hosting us each year.

Additional
thanks this year go out to a group of fabulous people in Chicago who
helped organize PEPY’s first get-together there.  People came in from
all over the city, like Maryann’s sister Sarah who came down to deliver
a check and a hug even though she had to just turn right around to be
with her cute-as-can-be baby boy!  We were delighted with the support
and interest from our friends in Chicago, loved seeing past PEPY
volunteers, and enjoyed a nice brisk fall evening.  Many thanks to Drew
for hosting us and donating his birthday to the cause.

We
look forward to these events next year and welcome any other PEPY
meet-ups in YOUR area if you are up for hosting one!  Many thanks to
all those whose funds will help support our Primary School Development Program this year!
