Support The Mission continues through January 31, 2013 with the purchase of the “Private Reserve” Gift pack.

There is so much that the men and women in the military sacrifice to serve our country, it’s the least we could do to support them. Smith & Wollensky is proud to partner with The Mission Continues and donate proceeds from sales of our
“Private Reserve” Red & White Gift Pack to the cause.

TMC Logo_web1.jpgThe Mission Continues is an organization that awards community service fellowships to post-9/11 veterans. Coming back to civilian life, veterans often cite a desire to give something more, a sense of something missing from their lives. For six months, their fellowship gives them an opportunity to use skills learned in the military, and acquire new skills while working for a non-profit organization.

During an event at the Boston Back Bay restaurant, Spencer Kympton, COO of
The Mission Continues, introduced two fellows that recently completed their fellowships. Natasha Young and Jeff Hall told the crowd their personal experiences of how The Mission Continues filled a void in their lives. Hear their moving stories in the video above.

PartnerLogos_web4.jpgAvailable through the end of the year, the Red & White Gift Pack features the “Private Reserve” Meritage from Girard in Napa Valley and the “Private Reserve” Sauvignon Blanc handcrafted by Kunde Family Estate. It’s the perfect gift for any wine lover.

Kim Lapine, Vice President of Marketing for Smith & Wollensky, says, “We call it our ‘Red, White and You,’ and it’s a way to help our customers be a part of giving back to those who have served in the military.”

The“Private Reserve” Red & White Gift Pack will be sold online at www.smithandwollensky.com/shop until January 31, 2013 and can be shipped anywhere in the United States.
