Join us for a night on NYC’s dreamiest rooftop to celebrate the expansion of Behind You, our program that offers no-cost mental health counseling to F&B workers throughout NY. The evening’s celebration will begin with a 30-min cocktail reception. Followed by a 4-course dinner menu created by Chef Tom Colicchio, and a curated wine selection from Robert Sinskey Vineyards. Proceeds of this dinner will benefit the Southern Smoke Foundation and our work to provide a safety net for the F&B industry.
