Some wine for little hearts

Being from France, I have tendancy to write the way I speak so bear with me a little.  I am just gonna let my emotions speak.
I opened Mercy wine bar 10 years ago and I was 24 years old when I physically brought this baby a life and it is time for a big birthday celebration.
All proceeds for that evening will go to local charity call living for Zachary, prevention of sudden cardiac arrest in youth.
If you want to keep on reading I have attached the press release from my business partner.
Thank for taking the time trying to read those few words.( there is always google translate )
Hope to see you there.

Thank you.       Vincent Havard

On Saturday, May 11, Mercy will celebrate its first decade in business with a party from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m.Proceeds from the evening will go to Living for Zachary, a non profit charitable organization in PlanoTexas.  Living for Zachary is dedicated to raising awareness of sudden cardiac arrest in youth and saving lives through community education and awareness events, promoting youth heart screenings, awarding student scholarships and donating automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to organizations in need.


“We want this night to be about everything that Mercy has become in the past 10 years,” says owner Glen Agritelley. “This is a time for us to show our appreciation for the patrons we’ve gained through the years, and share our excitement about what is yet to come.”


The evening will include live music from the acts who regularly play at Mercy, including: Brown and Wild Reister, Orlando Salinas Band, David Gallegos Band, Hard Nights Day Acoustic Duo, Marcelo Berestovoy Trio, The Brehms, and Michael Stacy and Flamenco y Mas.


“After 10 years, our vision for Mercy remains the same,” Agritelley says. “And that is to share a memorable experience with our guests that is built around wine and food. We are so grateful for the years that we have already enjoyed here, and we look forward to what is yet to come.”
