Drink wine for charity

It's been about three weeks since my last post and I sincerely apologize to all you fans out there. Hello? Hello?? Did anyone hear that? I can pretend, can't I!?

Anyway, I would like to share news about a fundraiser for a good cause in Westchester. I read about this on Liz Johnson's Small Bites blog on http://www.lohud.com/. You can drink wine for charity... does it get any better than that?

DRINK WINE FOR CHARITY
Fourth Annual Wine Tasting Raises Money for Local Organizations

WHAT: Chappaqua Rotary and Hilltop Wines are once again teaming up to present a festive, entertaining and delicious evening of wine tasting that serves as a fundraiser for local organizations supported by the Rotary Club of Chappaqua.

Attendees can sample more than 100 wines from around the world and enjoy hors d’oeuvres provided by Crabtree’s Kittle House. The wines are also available for sale, with 10% of the profits donated to the Rotary for distribution to their charities.

WHEN: Wednesday, April 2, 2008, 7 to 9:30 p.m.

WHERE: Crabtree’s Kittle House, 11 Kittle Road, Chappaqua, NY

WHY: “This is a unique opportunity to sample wines from around the world, enjoy excellent cuisine and benefit so many organizations that are important to the community, including the Chappaqua Volunteer Fire Department, the Hillside Food Pantry and the Northern Westchester Women’s Shelter, just to name a few,” says John Buckley, President of the Chappaqua Rotary. “We are pleased that this event does so much to help these groups provide their essential services to those in need.”

MORE INFO: Tickets are available for $75 in advance and $80 at the door, with all proceeds benefiting Rotary charities. They can be purchased in-person at Hilltop Wines, 423 King Street, Chappaqua; or reserved by calling 914-238-8422 or via email at hilltopwine@verizon.net.

Maybe you'll catch Hill and Bill there, although I doubt they are doing much campaigning in their hometown right now!
