Press Release

Community Resources presents “Red, White & Blush: A Wine Tasting Event,” from 6 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, April 27 at Beckham Hall, at Wesleyan University.

Forest City Wine & Spirits in Middletown, CT has arranged for 16 Connecticut-based distributors to provide tastings of more than 70 wines and beer.

All wines and beer will be available to order at the event, with proceeds donated to MARC: Community Resources. (I.D. is required.)

Bon Appetit will provide light fare, including hot hors d’oeuvres.

The event is sponsored by A.R. Mazzotta Employment Specialists, Greenwald Industries and Liberty Bank.

Tickets are $25 per person.

Guests can enter a drawing for an iPad mini, a Nexus 7 tablet, and a case of the event’s most popular wines.

New this year is a small silent auction featuring suites to a New Britain Rock Cats and a CT Whale game, “Best of Downtown Middletown” packages, and lunch for two and the opportunity to attend a taping of Better Connecticut with Channel 3’s Scot Haney.

“More than 360 people attended our inaugural wine tasting last year, making this one of Middletown’s largest social events,” said Liz Warner, President/CEO. “Guests will enjoy a fun night out while sampling a great selection of wines – all at an unbeatable price of only $25.”

All proceeds benefit MARC’s Adult Skill Development & Leisure Program and the Saturday Morning Fun & Friends program for children. These programs provide community-based recreation opportunities for people with disabilities. Activities contribute to an improved quality of life by promoting health and wellness, personal growth, and safety.

“Many people with disabilities lack leisure activities in the evening and on weekends,” said Lisa Christensen, Director of Adult Recreation. “As a result, many still experience instances of isolation and exclusion. We provide opportunities to practice the skills that lead to inclusive, independent and fulfilling lives.”

Parking for this event is free. To order tickets or for more information, visit www.marccommunityresources.org or call 860-342-0700, ext. 210.
