MARC Community Resources Presents:The Ultimate Tasting Event

For the fifth year in a row, on the evening of June 4, 2016, MARC Community Resources will host its Ultimate Tasting Event at Wesleyan University.  Once again, the event will be hosted under a large party tent on Andrus Field from 6-9 pm and will include music and a silent auction. 

While listening to the Trevor Davis Jazz Quartet, guests will enjoy the splendor of a warm June evening.  Throughout the evening, guests can sample a variety of wines, beers, and spirits while savoring a variety of appetizers and desserts.  A cigar and bourbon tasting has been added this year.

“It has been an absolute privilege for me to work on the Ultimate Tasting Event committee and I’m very excited the date is finally approaching,” said Katie Simmons, Committee Member.  Learning about MARC and all they do for those they serve has been a very humbling experience. It has been an honor to spread the word and gain support for such a wonderful program. I am truly in awe of this community and am looking forward to a night filled with fun, friends and spirits!”

“Hosting our event under the tent and adding music was a huge success last year,” said Lori Lodge, Director of Development.  “This year we are stepping it up once again by adding a cigar and bourbon tasting to the event.  For those who would like to try cigars, they can purchase a cigar adjunct ticket for $15 which will provide them with three different cigars to try at their leisure.  Tickets to the main event are just $35 – an unbelievable value!

Bon Appetit will provide a light fare, including servers circulating with hot hors d’oeuvres and stationary appetizers and desserts.  This event is sponsored by Champagne Sponsor: A.R. Mazzotta Employment Specialists, Red Sponsors: Fusion Cable System, LLC and Greenwald Industries, and White Sponsors: Egidio Assante Wealth Management, Liberty Bank, and Mahoney Sabol & Company, LLP.  To order tickets, visit www.marccommunityresources.org or call (860) 342-0700, ext. 210.

Last year this event raised over $38,000 which helps to fund expanded and enhances services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. 

MARC Community Resources empowers people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to realize their dreams. To honor and help fulfill these dreams, MARC provides people with choices for housing, employment, and social/recreational life.
