Third Annual Hops & Grapes, Toasts & Tastes to Raise Money for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society – Norwalk, CT

1 Apr

This is THE event that you don't want to miss!

A few weeks ago we shared the news that local Stamford restaurants were banding together to raise money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society with their Big Night event.  On the heels of that great fundraiser comes the Third Annual Hops & Grapes, Toasts & Tastes event.  Let the drinks pour, the food be eaten, and the money pile up for this great cause.  Hops & Grapes, Toasts & Tastes will take place on April 14, 2012 from 7:30 pm to 10:30 pm at Stepping Stones Museum for Children in Norwalk, CT.  Tickets to the event are $75 or two for $125.  If you go out to a nice restaurant, then that covers the cost.  You’ll be eating and drinking well, but you’ll also be helping out a charity that desperately needs your help.  Also, you can purchase VIP tickets at $100 each or two for $175 that include a souvenir wine glass, LLS Relentless wristband, raffle ticket, and deluxe gift bag.   A silent auction and raffle will also take place, with prizes donated by Hyatt Regency Greenwich, Capital Grille, Brewer’s Hardware, and The Rugg Family.

As of Friday, these are the restaurants, shops, vineyards, and liquor/beer distributors that will be providing samples:

American Harvest Vodka, Back East Brewing Company, Barcelona Restaurant, Bartaco,

BJ Ryan’s BANC House, Butterfield8, Cabot Cheese, Café D’Azur,

    Looks like it’ll be a great event! Unfortunately I am already headed to another similar event that night, Taste of Wethersfield! More in my price and geographic range, haha

          I can see it’s a very personal and important event and fundraiser for you. I have a similar feeling about MS because my sister was diagnosed with it a few years back. So, whenever I can, Kristien and I support MS and other charities to help make a difference.

  1. 4th Annual Hops & Grapes Toasts & Tastes Event to Raise Funds for LLS | OmNomCT - March 12, 2013

    […] Last year we checked out Hops & Grapes Toasts & Tastes and had such a great time.  There was great food galore from restaurants across Fairfield County with plenty of beer and wine to try.  This year on 4/12 from 7:30-10:30 we can expect the fourth annual Hops & Grapes Toasts & Tastes to be even better as it moves into its new location:  the Stamford Innovation Center in the heart of downtown.  There will be plenty of room to mingle at this classic landmark building…and plenty of room to get your tastebuds tingling, too.  In addition to the restaurants, caterers, cheesemongers, and bakeries, there will also be drinks and representation from breweries.  When you’re in between drinks and courses, be sure to check out the great silent auctions that will be available (follow them on FB for early previews of what will be up for auction).  Finally, if you stick around towards the end, you can take part in the live auction with amazing trips, gifts, and packages.  We are also very proud and excited to be one of the media sponsors for this amazing event that raises vital money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society that fights leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma.
