A Valentine’s Day brunch was held in honor of Charlie Villanueva by Moet Hennessy USA at Softiro NYC (Villanueva’s favorite restaurant) as part of the company’s “Never Stop. Never Settle,” campaign. Villanueva was recognized for his dedication to community service, basketball accolades, and upliftment of the Latino community. The brunch featured family and close friends of Villanueva including many recognizable faces such as Yasiel Puig, Bobby Simmons, Los Rakas, and Julissa Bermudez. Villanueva created a post on his personal blog recapping the event including a video that makes you jealous you weren’t there.
