NAA Hosts Sommelier-Led Wine Tasting at Deloitte

On July 11th, the NAA hosted an intimate gathering for friends of our organization. Sommelier Michael Adler of Union Square's Italian Wine Merchants led the tasting, and the conversations around the table ranged from "What are you doing this summer?" to "What's most important to you about the access and inclusion dialogue?".
Board Co-Chair Tom Soto kicked off the event and several speakers followed to chime in on why they support the NAA and its mission, including member Rosie VonLila of Lumera and Kate Madine of Marblegate. 
The event gathered entrepreneurs and investors alike, and was a huge success! Great people, great conversation, and something we will repeat soon!

Thank you to Deloitte for lending its executive board room at the top of 30 Rock, and to Board Co-Chair Juan Sabater for sponsoring the event.
Danielle Beyer, CEO, NAA and Kate Madine of Marblegate
