Update: there are other fundraisers for Sandy Hook Elementary, too.
Around 1:30 today, Saugatuck Grain & Grape in Westport announced that AT LEAST 10% of their sales for their Bubbles, Bubbles, and More Bubbles event will go to The Sandy Hook School Support Fund. Even just a few hours after announcing this great fundraiser to help out all the families, staff, and friends of those affected by the shooting that shook Newtown and Connecticut to its core, Saugatuck Grain & Grape received a $500 donation. If that’s any indication of the money that will be raised, this will be an event to remember in so many different ways.
Now, speaking of champagne: Jeff, Mimi, and co. will have plenty of the sparkly stuff for you to taste. You’ll get to sample from just some of these champagnes: Pierre Gimonnet, Henri Goutorbe, Chartogne-Taillet, Aubry, Alfred Gratien, Pol Roger, Phillipe Gonet, Gosset, Henriot, Vollereaux and Laurent Perrier. You’ll learn all about champagne and learn that champagne isn’t just what you’ve grown to know. There’s a whole other world of champagne ahead of you, ready to explore.
So, come on out Saturday, 12/22/12 from 3 to 7 pm and stop by Saugatuck Grain & Grape. You’ll need to pick up some nice champagne for Christmas and/or New Year’s Eve anyway, so why not support a local business and help people out who were cut to the bone all at the same time? Just added: make sure to bring $5 to contribute as your tasting fee. The entrance/tasting fee will go directly to The Sandy Hook School Support Fund.
Here’s all the event info plus an RSVP on Facebook if you feel obliged. :)
