Charity Works 100 Point Vintage Wine Tasting
Successful Soiree for See Forever

Charity Works held its first 100 Point Vintage Wine Tasting on June 4 at Jim Kimsey’s impressive McLean home. Festivities included the tasting of ten vintages rated at 100 points by internationally-known wine critic, Robert Parker, and a multi-course meal prepared by eight well-known D.C. chefs. Participating chefs included Jeffrey Buben of Vidalia and Bistro Bis, Michel Richard of Citronelle, Roberto Donna of Galileo, Todd Gray of Equinox, Robert Weidmaier of Marcel’s, Jeff Tunks of DC Coast, Ceiba and Ten Penh, Kaz Okochi of Kaz Sushi Bistro and Jonathan Krinn of 2941 Restaurant.

The internationally celebrated wines included1982 Pichon Lalande, 1986 Haut Brion and 1990 Margaux. Charity Works is an all-volunteer organization that provides fundraising and management assistance to public service and charitable organizations.

Thanks to the efforts of co-chairs Jack Davies and Anjanette Murphy, the event raised over $309,000 for the Maya Angelou Public Charter School operated by See Forever. The funds will be used to open a second campus in Anacostia for 150 at-risk teens.
