What are you doing for Columbus Day Weekend?
Long sunny bike rides, harvest fairs, pumpkin carving, raking leaves and lazy late afternoons with a glass of wine contemplating a nice meal. These are my favorite ways to enjoy this weekend. The exctra day is pure luxury.
Last year I added a new ritual to my Columbus day plans. Instead of a roast in my own oven I enjoyed some new wines while contemplating how many of my neighbors dont have the luxury of of a big afternoon meal on the weekend.
Early each fall, Our Community Food Pantry, which serves Southwick, Granville and Tolland has a Stop out Hunger Campaign. It's purpose is to educate the community on the local need. For the 2nd year running the festivities end with a wine tasting.
From 4-8pm this Sunday October 13th, Louie B's in Southwick will host Stomp Out Hunger with wine. Tickets for the wine tasting and appetizers are $25. Tickets for the food alone are $10. The restaurants hosts a full bar, which ensures no one needs to have an empty glass.
Terra Americana has helped to sponsor the cost of the fabulous food. This means your participation goes directly to your neighbors in need.
- With every $1 raised we can help to provide 7 nutritional breakfast for local children.
- With every $100 raised we can help feed a family of 4 for 1 month.
We hope you will consider a change in your usual Columbus day festivities and Help Us Stomp Out Hunger with Wine.
