Sip. Nosh. Make a difference.
Taste of Generosity: Cocktails & Nosh 2019
The fourth annual Taste of Generosity: Cocktails & Nosh is a one-of-a-kind cocktail event that will inspire and lift your spirits as we celebrate an amazing group of MS Stars – people who are important to the MS Movement. Attendees will sip delicious drinks from an array of local distilleries, wineries and breweries, and taste unique hors d'oeuvres and a signature dessert. They will bid on exciting silent and live auction items and enjoy a short program. Most importantly, we recognize and honor a group of distinguished MS Stars – people who have been nominated for making an impact on the MS movement in some way. These individuals will be honored at the event in various ways that include their photo and bio in the event program, photo on the Wall of Fame, recognition at the table, and recognition during the event presentation. Funds raised at this event will support National MS Society programs and services to help people with multiple sclerosis live their best lives.
