WINE TASTING TO SUPPORT ARTS COUNCIL

SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

 

The Suffield Council for the Arts will be hosting a Wine Tasting on Saturday, May 6, 2006.  Save the date!!  The event will be held at The Connecticut Culinary Institute, 1760 Mapleton Ave (Rt 159 near the MA border), Suffield, CT at 7 PM, with the doors opening at 6:30 PM.  This is a wonderful evening out for a very special time with friends.  If you haven’t been to one of our wine tastings you’ll be pleased you came to this one.  It’s different than all the rest!

 

The evening will include 6 wines selected by Suffield Spirits, matched with fancy hors d’oeuvre’s skillfully prepared and served tableside by the Connecticut Culinary Institute.  This evening is a very unique event.  It includes an art exhibit, silent auction, as well as live entertainment, making this a wonderful evening to remember.  Not only are you supporting the arts by attending, but you are also helping to shape the skills of the chefs and the wait staff in training.  The evening wouldn’t be complete without the expert commentary provided about the wines.  You’ll have the opportunity to learn about each wine and how the wine and hors d’oeuvre pairings compliment each other.

 

The purpose of this event is to raise funds for the Suffield Council for the Arts.  The proceeds from the evening will benefit the Arts Council’s Annual Scholarship Program and other events.  The Arts Council’s Annual Scholarship program is our primary mission each year and our way of giving back to Suffield artists.  Auditions for these scholarships are held in early June of each year.  Other Arts Council events include a number of annual events including monthly exhibits at the William Pinney Art Gallery at Kent Memorial Library, Sidewalk Art Competition (Sept), Veterans Day Concert (Nov), Snow Sculpture Competition (Feb) and other lectures, photo contests, and concerts.

 

Cases or mixed cases will be available for ordering that night.  For each case ordered Suffield Spirits will be donating a percent of the sales to the Arts Council.  Payment for any cases ordered will be at the time of delivery.

 

Tickets are $40 per person and will only be sold in advance at Suffield Spirits, 128 Mountain Rd (CVS Plaza), Suffield, CT (860-668-5840).
