ENDOWMENT HOLDS VIRTUAL WINE-TASTING AT ASM

On April 21, at the tail end of ABI's Annual Spring Meeting, a sizeable crowd of ABI Endowment supporters gathered online for a lively and informative presentation by master of wine Lindsay Pomeroy and top chef Mikel Anthony. Participants enjoyed specialty hand-crafted wines shipped ahead of time by Spirit of Wine as the experts disussed the nuances of each wine and food-pairing possibilities. Cozen O'Connor, Development Specialists, Inc. and Polsinelli generously sponsored the event.
