On the Town:

Mark next Wed, June 13 on your calendar for the 3rd Annual Grape Escape at Ferré and Crú in the West Village. If it’s got “grape” in its title, it’s a pretty safe bet that there’ll be wine there, and this event is for a very good cause at two very cool venues.

The Grape Escape benefits Heart House Dallas, an after school program for low-income and at-risk kids in the Dallas area. The program is novel because it reaches directly into the apartment complexes of the kids who need it most, making fun and safe afternoon activities easily accessible and free. Heart House programs currently serve 85 Dallas kids, and last year’s Grape Escape raised more than $70,000.

A $75 or $150 ticket gets you into the event for an evening of wine, food, music, silent auction and raffle. Purchase tickets online at Heart House and check out the silent auction page.
