Keeping up would like to make a toast: Congrats to all the local businesses in Bedford-Stuyvesant for Keeping Up!
Last night I attended the Second Annual Toast to Bedford-Stuyvesant Wine & Cocktail Tasting Fundraiser, along with my friend Rachel, held inside the Bedford-Stuyvesant branch of Carver Federal Savings Bank in Brooklyn, NY. This event highlights and celebrates the small businesses, community leaders, and organizations in the Bedford-Stuyvesant primary business district. Liquor and Wine brands of all kinds came out to showcase their brands to the attendees. The event also featured hors d’oeuvres and live music by Bedford-Stuyvesant’s Brandon Sanders Jazz Ensemble.
In the effort to help promote small businesses, it was very fitting for Keeping Up to be in attendance. It was both inspiring and motivational to witness an effort to celebrate African American businesses and entrepreneurs. Once again congrats for Keeping Up!
