Help reunite Luis Marin with his family.

On Monday April 9th Luis was approached and detained by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents. This page has been dedicated to raise money to help support Luis’s legal expenses, while his friends and legal team fight to bring him home to his wife, two younger sisters, father and mother.

Luis has been a community member of East Hampton since he arrived with his family from Ecuador in 1997. Attending East Hampton High School and going on to graduate from Suffolk County Community College.

You might have gotten to know Luis as part of the Nick and Toni’s staff family, where he’s worked for the last 6 years. Working his way up from a young busser to Sommelier. His love for wine led him to a second job at the Wainscott Main Wine and Spirits store, where perhaps he has helped you pick out just the right wine for a dinner party or a special gift. The one thing that’s common about Luis at both locations is that he always greeted you with that contagious smile of his, which go hand in hand with his kind heart and zest for life.

Help support Luis by donating anything you can to help him come home to his family. The process will be long, difficult and expensive, anything you can donate is greatly appreciated. Our goal is to bring Luis home safely and as quickly as possible. #BringLuisHome #IDontWineAndDineWithoutLuis
