Wine for a Cause at CT Strategies

On Tuesday, May 3rd,  CT Strategies hosted the Wine for a Cause gathering with Chufly Imports. The event  centered on raising awareness for San Miguel School. San Miguel provides tuition-free education for disadvantaged middle school aged boys. Notable for its high-quality education, the school boasts an impressive 100% graduation rate.


The evening kicked off with conversation and tastings of Chufly’s considerable range of fine wines, followed by welcoming remarks by CT Strategies CEO, Andrew Farrelly and Co-founder of Chufly, Ramon Escobar. With an distinguished 14-years in the foreign service and a passion for addressing global economic inequality through the wine industry, Ramon let us into his incredible journey from government service to creating sustainable opportunities for family farmers in Bolivia. We also heard remarks from Maureen Appel, President of San Miguel, who shared the San Miguel School story and expressed gratitude for the students, faculty, and support.

Farrelly and Escobar have pioneered the Entrepreneurs Club at San Miguel School. The extracurricular club introduces students to the fundamentals of running a business. The club boasts a team of bright and eager students who also attended the event. The 8th graders shared their stories and premiered their very own business by the name of San Miguel Apparel. During the event, participants got a first look at their impressive T-Shirt design dedicated to the 20th anniversary of San Miguel School.

The evening continued with networking and exceptional wine tasting as participants learned about the opportunities fostered through San Miguel School and the inspiring mission behind the unique Wine at Chufly Imports. CT Strategies thanks all those who attended the Wine for a Cause gathering. We’re looking forward to seeing you at future events!
