PAWTUCKET – The Children’s Shelter of Blackstone Valley will host a wine tasting event on April 25 at the Wannamoisett Country Club in Rumford.
Gasbarro’s Wines – Federal Hill will present a varied selection of wines for sampling and the event will include hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction and raffle, live music, and a cash bar.
Tickets for the event are $40 in advance and $50 at the door per person and can be purchased on the events page of the shelter’s website at csbv.org or by calling the shelter. The Children’s Shelter of Blackstone Valley has cared for abused and neglected boys and girls, from infancy to 12 years of age, from all of Rhode Island since 1979. The shelter provides these children with emergency housing, a therapeutic environment with quality care, a trained staff, and a fulltime clinician.
Proceeds from the event will directly benefit the children who need care and rehabilitative services.
The shelter still is looking for event sponsors.
