This year Kiva, a world-wide micro loan organization, hosted their 3rd annual wine tasting event at Bottlerocket Wine & Spirit near Union Square. Tatiana Valerie provided an extensive photo coverage for the event.
Kiva is an organization that connects lenders with entrepreneurs in developing countries. Lenders give loans, as little as $25, which can help entrepreneurs with much needed capital to start (or expand) their business. Kiva New York team is a volunteer group of lenders. Every year, they host multiple events to raise money for their team fund. The third annual wine tasting event was held on February 4th in New York City. While the events are held offline, much of the marketing work happens online – announcing the event, selling tickets, spreading word about the event etc.
