We have worked with Food Bank for the past 15 years on Savor Syracuse, an annual fundraiser. In honor of The Food Bank’s 30th anniversary in 2015, we have come up with something new and exciting that we hope you will join us for!
Cork Hunger: A Wine Auction to Benefit Food Bank of Central New York is a cocktail reception, multi-course wine dinner, and wine auction (both silent and live) taking place at SKY Armory on Friday, April 24, 2015. This event will be a great resource for everyday wine enthusiasts and a way for collectors to score hard-to-find bottles.
Our auction committee of fine wine aficionados is reaching out to wineries around the globe and private cellars requesting they send a single bottle or case of some of their best vintages to Syracuse. We are asking members of our community to donate wine and wine-related items with a minimum retail value of $75.00 that can be auctioned at the event.
If you have a special vintage or another wine-related item, and are interested in making a tax-deductible donation, please click here to fill out the donation form.
We are also looking for supportive organizations to help sponsor this event – there are a variety of levels to choose from.
Between now and April 24, we’ll be using #corkhunger and we look forward to unveiling the Cork Hunger logo and sharing information and updates! Stay tuned!
We and the Food Bank are committed to responsible drinking – you must be age 21 or older to attend this event, consume alcohol, or purchase alcohol.
