Wine For a Good Cause – The Jimmy Fund

If you live in the New England area this is a great way to taste wine for a worthy cause:

 

Raise Your Glass for Jimmy presented by the Jimmy Fund Council of Greater Boston

Wine tasting event is Wednesday, Sept. 25

Raise Your Glass for Jimmy presented by the Jimmy Fund Council of Greater Boston will take place in the Main Ballroom of The Liberty Hotel in Boston on September 25 from 6 to 9 p.m.

Admission to the event includes hors d’oeuvres and live music. Enjoy a variety of wines with a good selection of whites and reds to appeal to all palettes. Participating wine vendors include M.S. Walker, Horizon Beverage, Plymouth Bay Winery, Federal Wine & Spirits, Gordon’s Fine Wines & Liquors and August West Wines. All proceeds support adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

This event will also feature a wine drawing (buy a chance for $35 and you are guaranteed a bottle of wine worth at least $25) and a silent auction with a trip to a vineyard in Sonoma, Calif., including airfare, several large format wines, a four-course chef’s tasting menu for four at Strega worth $500, and many other great items.

Tickets for this event are $50 per person, and include a $25 gift certificate for Tresca, donated by Tresca restaurant, for the first 150 guests at the door.

  1. I love wine events that support worthy charities as well. Wish I was there!

  2. Thanks for promoting us! We will also be auctioning off a private wine-tasting for 4 people at the new restaurant Ribelle in Brookline, with sommelier Theresa Paopao, General Manager and Beverage Director, and 2013 Best of Boston Sommelier!
