Public Invited to Free “Around the World Wine-tasting,” Charity Event on September 23

KidsPeace Foster Care associates and capitol area tastemakers will be gathering in Laurel, MD, on Thursday, Sept. 23, to help local children in need.  A special fundraiser and free wine-tasting at Corridor Fine Wine in Laurel will benefit hundreds of Washington and Maryland children in foster care and adoption programs run by the national children’s charity KidsPeace.


The public is invited between 6 and 9 p.m. to enjoy the evening’s “Around the World Wine Tasting,” featuring upscale wines and champagnes from five countries.  The tasting is free, and 30 percent of all wine sales generated that night, as well as all silent auction proceeds will be donated to KidsPeace.


“This event is for people with a thirst, not just for the finer things in life, but for helping children, many of whom don’t have even the basics such as a home and a loving adult to guide their way,” said Steve Faith, Vice President of Wine Operations for Corridor Fine Wine.  


“It’s not every day you get to take a trip around the globe,” according to Diane Sancilio, KidsPeace Manager of Foster Care and Community Programs. “And at the same time do a world of good to benefit our children.”


Save the date and plan to attend to feel good while doing some good and benefit hundreds of children in the Baltimore and Washington areas. The event is on September 23 from 6:00-9:00 p.m. at 3321 Corridor Marketplace, Laurel, MD 20724. For directions, call 301-617-8507.
