Event Benefits Infants and Children Though Early Intervention Services
For wine enthusiasts and foodies alike, the 7th Annual Winter Wine Spectacular, will be held January 28 at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester from 6 to 9 p.m. This premier wine event for Easter Seals, presented by The NH Liquor and Wine Outlets, welcomes Bedford Ambulatory Surgical Center, Apple Therapy Services, The Orthopedic Center and G-Force Braces as sponsors at the $10,000 level. This generous sponsorship, will support Easter Seals’ Early Intervention Services, which provides physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy to children with disabilities and special needs from birth to age three throughout the state.
“As an Easter Seals board member it an honor and privilege to pull together four of our companies to sponsor this year’s Winter Wine Spectacular,” said Douglas Goumas, M.D. “Each company is based in Southern New Hampshire and has a strong commitment to providing health care services. With Easter Seals’ long history of providing heath care services to people in need, this is the perfect partnership.”
Thanks to the generous support of NH’s local wine brokers, the Winter Wine Spectacular offers a vast selection of more than 1,400 varietals, dozens of winemakers, wine seminars, and fabulous food from the area’s most popular restaurants. It is no wonder the Easter Seals NH Winter Wine Spectacular, sponsored by RiverStone Resources LLC, sells out every year!
Wine experts from around the world will be on hand with a large selection of their vintages for you to sip from your own Riedel Crystal stemware, sponsored by Porsche of Nashua. This is a unique opportunity to learn about wine from the experts and meet someone from your favorite vineyard!
This year’s seminars include A Taste of Italy with Banfi Vinters and A True Napa Valley Icon: Stag’s Leap wine Cellars. The cost for each workshop is $25.
The Winter Wine Spectacular is presented as part of Wine Week 2010: a full week of wine excitement throughout the state, including a seminar hosted by Kevin Zraly, on January 26th with a portion of the proceeds to benefit Easter Seals. There will be unique wine dinners, bottle signings, and private tastings throughout the state every day! For more information, go www.nh.gov/liquor/wineweek.shtml.
This year, all proceeds from the event will be used to cover the cost of providing Early Intervention services to more than 3,000 children and family members throughout the state. Easter Seals is committed to providing exceptional services to ensure that all people with disabilities or special needs and their families have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities. Easter Seals provides services to over 28,000 children, adults and seniors throughout the state.
Major sponsors of the Winter Wine Spectacular include New Hampshire Magazine, New Hampshire Business Review, NH Home Magazine, 95.7 WZID & The Mill, Bellman Jewelers, Visual Persuasion, LLC, Ben Franklin Printers, Ameriprise Financial and Law Warehouses. Proud new sponsors joining the event this year are St. Mary’s Bank, The Orthopedic Center, Apple Therapy Services, G-Force and Bedford Ambulatory Surgical Center.
Back by popular demand to this year’s event is the Bellman Jeweler’s Cellar Select Room which offers the opportunity to sample a variety of distinctive, high-quality wines and to qualify to win a $1,000 value jewelry door prize! A very limited number of tickets are available.
The evening’s silent auctions, sponsored by Wieczorek Insurance, will feature a variety of items in all tasting rooms. This year’s auction will also feature beautiful artwork provided by the NH Institute of Art, with all pieces highlighting the beauty of wine and food.
Tickets for the Grand Tasting are $60 per person or $150 per person for full access to both Bellman’s Cellar Select and the Grand Tasting. Tickets make a great holiday gift and corporate discounts are available. Don’t delay, order today! This event will sell out quickly!
