St-Germain, the New Wines of Greece, Ommegang Brewery, Fonté Coffee Roasters, Vita Coco, and Brooklyn Roasting Company will provide beverages for the afternoon. Performances will include the Hot Sardines, Justin Warner, MVPleez, coverage by Heritage Radio and more. In addition to the entertainment, the event features a silent auction of visual art created by hospitality individuals, as well as other experiences and specialty food focused items. All proceeds from ticket sales and silent auction items will go towards Fourth Arts Block, the Greenwich House and Urban Arts Partnership.
