The Scarsdale Rotary Club’s Ninth Annual Wine Tasting Fundraiser will take place on Thursday April 19, 2018 at the Scarsdale Golf Club from 6-8:30 PM. A variety of wines from around the world will be provided by Vintology and food sampling stations will be provided by local restaurants: Muscato, Chat, Meritage, Lange’s Deli, Chef Victor of the Scarsdale Golf Club, Ruffled Feathers, Raasa Indian Cuisine and desserts by Martines. The event will feature a live auction of high end items, a raffle of restaurant certificates and a door prize by Wilson and Sons Jewelers.
The Event will support the Scarsdale Rotary Club’s new partnership with the Rotary Clubs of New York City and San Juan to help families who still are living without power or access to clean water in Puerto Rico: a portion of the proceeds will be used to purchase solar lights (some with built-in phone charging stations) and portable high volume water filtration systems.
As in past years, the event will support charitable projects as well as grants to five designated charity partners (The Greenburgh Nature Center; Lakota Children’s Enrichment; Scarsdale & Edgemont Family Counseling Services; The Scarsdale Foundation; and Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps), and discretionary grants awarded through an application process. The discretionary grants awarded this year went to the Children’s Aid Wagon Road Camp, Girls Inc. of Westchester, Haiti MaryCare, Hospice of Westchester, The Luke Moretti iPad Program at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, Make A Wish of the Hudson Valley, My Sister’s Place, Pace Women’s Justice Center, and the Scarsdale Task Force on Drugs and Alcohol.
