The Kiwanis Club of Wilton/Saratoga will
be host its 15th annual Wine and Beer Tasting
event 5:30-8:30 p.m. on Friday, May 18, at the
Saratoga Springs City Center.
The club is currently looking for Business
and Personal Sponsors to the event.
Sponsorship levels range from $150 to $750,
and all levels receive advertising and complimentary
tickets to the event. The club is also
seeking donations for silent and live auctions.
The annual tasting has regular attendance
of about 200 people, according to the Kiwanis
Club. This year, at a new location, it is hoping
to attract over 250 people. Tickets are $35 presale
and $40 at the door.
The event raises money for various community service projects. These include fostering youth literacy through a Reading is Fundamental program; Breakfast with Santa; purchasing clothes and toys for more than 300 children in need at Christmas; and providing Thanksgiving food baskets to over 200 families.
The club also provides help and financial support to individuals and organizations throughout Saratoga County. Through these and other community service projects, the Wilton Kiwanis Club regularly invests over $20,000 per year back into the local community. All of the money raised at this wine tasting and at any Wilton Kiwanis fundraiser is reinvested in community projects.
Sponsors so far include The Saratoga Business Journal, the Grapevine Fine Wine and Liquor, Saratoga National Bank and April Fresh Cleaning.
