Drink wine, eat food, repeat.
Hey, that’s something that we can get used to! And, that’s exactly what you’ll be doing this Friday from 7-10 at The North Stamford Exchange Club’s 5th Annual Wine Tasting. The event, held at The Italian Center of Stamford, is a vital fundraiser for the Exchange Club who uses the money to donate to the Exchange Club Parenting Skills Center, ARI, Stamford Youth Foundation, local fire departments, the Shelter for the Homeless, and the Stamford Historical Society. Tickets are $50 per person, $190 for a Bottle Pack of 4, or $270 for a Magnum Pack of 6 people. You can get tickets here, by calling up Amy Wilmot at 203-667-1202, by visiting Giovana’s Wines & Spirits at 1492 High Ridge Road, or even at the door.
