Spuntino Wine Bar Holding Month Long Puerto Rico Fundraiser

Rico Fascino

Rico Fascino

From November 1-30, Spuntino Wine Bar & Italian Tapas (http://spuntinowinebar.com) in Clifton will sell a specialty cocktail, the Rico Fascino, where a portion of proceeds from sales will be donated to United for Puerto Rico, an initiative created by the Office of the First Lady, Beatriz Rosselló, and a group from the private sector that came together with the purpose of helping those who lost their belongings during the passage of hurricanes Irma and Maria.

The idea for the fundraiser was sparked by Spuntino Wine Bar & Italian Tapas employee, Gabriela Lugo, who returned from a trip to the island just hours ahead of Hurricane Maria’s landfall and has family members living in Puerto Rico that were directly affected by the storm’s impact. Lugo’s personal experience and accounts of similar stories from fellow employees and customers became the inspiration for the fundraising initiative. Together, she and her colleague, Alexis Morgan, developed the idea and collaborated to create the Rico Fascino cocktail, gaining the support of the Spuntino Wine Bar & Italian Tapas team.

Those interested in making a direction donation to United for Puerto Rico can also visit www.unidosporpuertorico.com for more information.

Cheers,

Veronique
