Achieve’s Nights of 100 Dinners Virtual Wine Tasting Kick Off

Achieve’s biggest fundraiser, our Annual Nights of 100 Dinners will have a different approach this year, starting with our kick-off event. Please join Achieve on Friday, March 19th at 7:30pm for a Virtual Wine Tasting hosted by SOMA’s premiere wine connoisseur and community supporter, Hank Zona of The Grapes Unwrapped. Since 2005, our Nights of 100 Dinners has been one of our most successful fundraisers, raising over $500,000 to fund Achieve’s programs and realize our mission to support our students, families, and educators by addressing inequities, inspiring innovation, and fostering community. This year we’ve reimagined the event so that we can continue our tradition of bringing the community together to support Achieve and celebrate to benefit the kids in our District. While we won’t be together in-person, you can still join your friends and neighbors as you enjoy a curated selection of 3 wines, artisanal cheeses from the Maplewood Wheelhouse, and scrumptious treats from The Able Baker. A silent auction and door prizes are also in the works. All proceeds go toward funding Achieve’s programs and initiatives.

For more information and to purchase tickets please go to givebutter.com/AchieveWithUs.

Interested in becoming a sponsor of Nights of 100 Dinners? How about donating an auction item or helping with the event?  Perhaps you have a vacation home you’d be willing to donate use of for a week or weekend?  Maybe you’re a stand-up comedian, a master mixologist or a magician—you can donate your skills as the entertainment for a host party.

And the fun doesn’t stop there. There are so many creative ways to host a party for Achieve. This year, events will take place in May (instead of the traditional March) in the hopes that virtual or Covid-safe, outdoor gatherings may be possible. Please consider hosting an opportunity for our community to come together with old and new friends to benefit students and educators across the South Orange-Maplewood School District.
