This will be the tenth year that Umbrella of Colonie, the home maintenance program of Colonie Senior Service Centers, will host the Warmth of Wine. This year’s event will be held on Thursday, February 26th from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at the Century House on Route 9 in Latham. Since the very first year of the program, all proceeds have gone directly to seniors in need to help defray their home heating costs, repair heating systems or improve insulation. Over 1,200 checks have been issued and hundreds of seniors helped. The first year 42 individuals were helped and in 2014 the number helped had grown to 237! This bitterly cold winter will surely find many more seniors in need of assistance.
The Warmth of Wine features 7 stations with fabulous Wine and Food Pairings; 30+ Raffles, 40+ Silent Auctions, a Mystery Wine Pull with over 150 bottles of wine, and fantastic Live Auctions. Tickets to the event are $50 with Honorary Committee tickets at $125. Honorary Committee tickets include a ticket to the main event as well as the Champagne reception which features hors d’oeuvres and champagne, a preview of the auction items, and an early start on the Mystery Wine Pull!
