On Saturday, MYX Fusions Moscato and Bartenura Wines were official sponsors of the GrassROOTS Community Foundation’s (GCF) annual “Give Thanks: Cocktail Fundraiser & Concert.” Hosted by GCF board member and Monami Entertainment CEO Mona Scott-Young, the event was attended by GCF co-founders Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter and Dr. Janice Johnson Dias along with special guests Michellene Davis, Esq (Barnabas Health), rapper Rah Digga, and actor J.D. Williams (The Wire). The evening’s program included a presentation by Girl Scout Troop #40724 on being thankful and a teary tribute by Nia Hobson and Holly Jackson to GCF supporter Tanji Dewberry, who tragically died in a house fire earlier this year along with her 8-year old son Evan. Guests were encouraged to donate to a raffle for exclusive MYX Fusions Party Baskets. Proceeds from the evening went toward GCF’s annual turkey drive, which feeds 100s of underprivileged families each year.
