Wine Tasting to Benefit New Milford Hospital Breast Care Fund

Wednesday, March 23, 2011 - New Milford, CT

The New Milford Spirit Shoppe will once again host a wine tasting event on April 1, 2011, from 6pm to 9 pm at the Candlewood Valley Country Club on Route 7 in New Milford to benefit the New Milford Hospital Breast Care Fund. Over 100 wines and a selection of beers and champagnes will be available for guests to sample and enjoy. In addition, delicious hors d’ouvres will be offered to compliment the beverages served.

New Milford Spirit Shoppe has hosted the wine tastings to benefit the Breast Care Fund at New Milford Hospital twice a year since 2006. Owner John NeJaime has raised over $40,000 for the Breast Care Fund that provides community education, education supplies and lymph edema care, among other services to the greater New Milford population.

“It’s said that education and awareness are the key to prevention,” says NeJaime. “Anything New Milford Spirit Shoppe can do to help combat this epidemic, we are happy to do.”

“John NeJaime and New Milford Spirit Shoppe have proven what good neighbors they are through their dedication to raising money for this fund at New Milford Hospital” reports Eileen McCormack, Manager of Development Operation at the New Milford Hospital Foundation. The NMH Foundation raises funds for New Milford Hospital to continually upgrade medical technology, provide ongoing education to keep employees and medical staff current with the most recent advances, and support community health and wellness programs.

Tickets are $25 and are available at New Milford Spirit Shoppe and the New Milford Hospital Gift Shop.
