On October 12th, 2013, GNA hosted the first annual Taste of Gramercy (“TOG”) on Irving Place, which exceeded everyone’s expectations. 20 restaurants, 12 sponsors and over 50 volunteers! As with all our events, our members received discounted tickets.
TOG was started to promote local businesses and introduce residents of NYC to the wonderful array of food that Gramercy has to offer. In addition, a portion of ticket sales went to benefit local schools, including PS 40 and School of the Future. The Bowery Mission participated in order to ensure that all leftover food went to feed the homeless that day in NYC. ACE New York, who provides job training, work experience and a lifetime support network to NYC’s homeless, provides clean up for the event.
