Last week, Bottles was honored to be a sponsor for a special event with Partnership for Philanthropic Planning Rhode Island (PPPRI). Taking place at the Aldrich House, one of Providence’s most celebrated historic homes and also the home of the Rhode Island Historical Society, PPPRI colleagues gathered for a networking and tasting reception.
PPPRI’s mission is to increase the quality and quantity of charitable planned gifts by serving as the voice and professional resource for the gift planning community. With over 100 Rhode Islanders in their membership, PPPRI was formed in the spring of 1993 by Susan DameGreene, Richard ELy and Richard LaFleur.
Attendees enjoyed a variety of fine wines and craft beers, selected by expert Eric Taylor, Bottles General Manager. Wines included Sean Minor Vin Gris, Girls in the Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc, Heitz Cellar Chardonnay, and Edna Valley Vineyards Pinot Noir, while the selection of craft beers included Cisco Sankaty Light, Unita Hop Notch IPA, and Allagash White.
A few days later after the event, Eric was touched to receive a thoughtful thank-you note and letter from outgoing President Joanne Speroni-Woody for helping put together a hugely successful evening. Eric had also given Joanne a gift of a custom engraved wine bottle, complete with an etched image of the PPPRI logo and a message. This bottle was engraved in-house at Bottles, as one of our special gifting options.
Thank-you Joanne & PPPRI!
