Celebrating 21 years of giving to the community, Gary’s Wine & Marketplace will present The 21st Annual Grand Tasting event on the evening of Thursday, October 18th at the elegant Park Avenue Club in Florham Park. Featuring Gary’s trademark assortment of stellar wines, this annual celebration raises proceeds which are then donated to deserving local organizations. This year, we are delighted to report that the Arts Council of the Morris Area is once again one of the four intended recipients, which also include Interfaith Food Pantry, Atlantic Home Care & Hospice, and Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute at Morristown Medical Center. Last year’s event raised attracted 500 participants and raised more than $15,000 for community organizations.
Both novices and connoisseurs alike are invited to indulge in tasting over 500 wines from an impressive array of vineyards and varietals along with plenty of nibbles at the beautiful Park Avenue Club.
Festivities start at 6pm with an exclusive VIP hour when attendees will have the opportunity to taste through the wines at the tops of their lists before the larger crowd arrives. General admission begins at 7pm, offering guests a 2 ½ hour experience to indulge in the lavish selections. Tickets must be purchased in advance at Gary’s Wine & Marketplace locations in Madison, Wayne and Bernardsville or through www.garyswine.com. VIP admission ticket price is $100 per person and the general admission ticket prices is $75 per person. Both include the cost of valet parking. (Tasters Guild members and parties of 10 or more should contact Donna Bird (email@example.com) for special rates.) We hope you will support this wonderful event which not only offers great enjoyment to participants but also the opportunity to give back to the community in a very real and meaningful way.
