Berkshire Hathaway to host wine tasting fundraiser to benefit Sunshine Kids

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties' Ridgefield office will hold its second annual wine tasting Friday, May 4, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Ridgefield Parks and Recreation, located at 195 Danbury Road.

All of the proceeds will benefit The Sunshine Kids Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping kids with cancer.

“We are all looking forward to another fun event to benefit the Sunshine Kids,” said office leader Josephine Simko. “Our planning committee is working tirelessly to make this a success.”

For a $40 donation, the event includes live music, wine, beer and bourbon tasting, and appetizers.

Plus, there will be a silent auction supported by many local businesses.

Attendees who wear a hat can participate in the event’s Kentucky Derby hat contest, as well.

Sunshine Kids works with children being treated at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford, Yale New Haven Children's Medical Center in New Haven and the Pediatric Hematology Oncology Association in Guilford. The money raised will be used towards trips and activities for young cancer patients.

The Sunshine Kids family is dedicated to providing the most exciting activities, trips and events, free of charge, for as many young cancer patients as possible.
