Wine Tasting Charity Event sponsored by New York Cork Report, Peconic Bay Winery and Lacrosse for Autism

Autism-event-bannerOn Saturday, April 30th from 1-4 pm, my friend and brethren in wine Lenn Thompson, is organizing a charity wine tasting event that will benefit The Cody Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities at Stony Brook University.  He has partnered his blog, The New York Cork Report, New York States go to website for all the latest wine information along with Lacrosse for Autism and Peconic Bay Winery, which will be hosting the event.

I plan on being there that day, along with my son Gabe.  Tickets $40 with a significant part of that going directly to the charity. Attendees will enjoy $2 glasses of wine, all of which will go to the charity, wine-friendly snacks by Keith Luce of Luce-Hawkins, 10% off bottle purchases and access to the silent auction.

This is the NYCR second charity fundraiser.  I missed out on the last one in September that benefited Angelman Syndrome.  It was a great success and Lenn helped raise money and awareness for the cause.  Lenn hopes to do the same again.

The silent auction looks to be delicious and exciting.  I won a case of Peconic Bay Wine last year via texting, this year I will be doing it live.  So far, here are some of the lots that will be part of the auction:

For those of you who have thought about joining Peconic Bay Winery’s Wine Club, wait until that day because Peconic Bay Winery has also generously offered to donate $100 for every attendee who signs up for their wine club.

To order tickets: Call Valerie Hallock at Peconic Bay Winery 631-734-7361.
