Culture Connect Featured Event
Join us in a toast to women! Come to our wine tasting event on International Women’s Day (March 8th) to celebrate great women everywhere. Have fun while helping to make a difference in the lives of women and girls. Enjoy tasting wines from five different vendors. Receive a special event discount from Super Cellar Warehouse Liquors on any three or more bottles purchased. There will be a silent auction as well with a chance to bid on many distinctive items from a foursome of golf to a weekend at a private condo in Mystic to jewelry from a luxury store. Or, bid and get a great deal on such services as a Spa Day, facial and massage, or local restaurant packages.
This event is presented by Soroptimist International of Farmington Valley, CT (SIFV). 100% of net proceeds will benefit SIFV’s projects including support of Grace Academy, a tuition-free, middle school for inner city girls in Hartford; Prudence Crandall Center, the oldest domestic violence program in Connecticut; and grants to women heads of households who need to further their education to support their families. Since its inception in 2004, SIFV has raised and given away more than $80,000 to benefit disadvantaged women and girls; those who are refugees, homeless, under-educated, abused, trafficked or caught in a cycle of poverty. Additionally, Soroptimist volunteers have mentored, taught or tutored countless women and girls in such areas as self-defense, life skills, and motivational classes.
This event is sponsored in part by Scala & Associates, LLC, Kathy McAfee - America’s Marketing Motivator, Body Talk, Collinsville Bank, Kevorkian & Associates, People’s United Bank, and Tina’s Ice Cream. Soroptimist International of Farmington Valley is a member of Soroptimist International, a 501(c)(3) volunteer service organization for business, professional and community-minded women who work to improve the lives of women and girls, in local communities and throughout the world.
