Long Island, NY - December 6, 2017 - Spuntino Wine Bar & Italian Tapas, specializing in small plates with a modern twist to Italian classics and fine wines from around the world, today announced it will join “Let’s Raise the Glass,” a national campaign to support those impacted by the devastating California wine country wildfires. Created by a coalition of restaurateurs and chefs and OpenTable, the world's leading provider of online restaurant reservations and part of The Priceline Group (NASDAQ: PCLN), “Let’s Raise the Glass” encourages restaurants to donate a portion of their wine sales through the end of December to the Let's Raise the Glass Fund.
 
Specifically, Spuntino Wine Bar & Italian Tapas restaurants in Clifton, NJ and Garden City, NY will donate 10 percent of California wine sales during the month of December to the Let’s Raise the Glass Fund. One hundred percent of donations to the fund will benefit the Sonoma Resilience Fund and Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund
 
“Charitable giving is ingrained in the culture of our team, and we are proud to support the Let’s Raise the Glass campaign,” said Regan DeBenedetto, director of operations, Spuntino Wine Bar & Italian Tapas. “We hope that we can make an impact through our efforts and help those affected by the wildfires in California get back on their feet and begin the rebuilding process.”
 
Let's Raise the Glass was inspired by Charleston Grill Sommelier Rick Rubel with the help of General Manager Mickey Bakst as a single restaurant's effort to donate a portion of the proceeds from every glass or bottle of California wine sold. Bakst, along with Daniel Boulud, Sean Brock, Suzanne Goin, and Danny Meyer, are part of the coalition of restaurateurs and chefs who have joined forces with OpenTable to create the campaign.
