William Smith athletics will take part in the “Chefs, Wine and Art” event at the New York Wine and Culinary Center in Canandaigua on Sunday, Oct. 17. The event held to support Embrace Your Sisters will feature top wines and will include instructions on wine pairing and tasting, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and jazz music performed by John Nyerges Quartet, during a silent auction, which will feature art as well as other one of a kind auctions.
The tickets cost $25, and all the proceeds go to Embrace Your Sisters (EYS), a local breast cancer financial assistance program. EYS provides emergency financial assistance to women battling the disease, many of whom cannot work, adding onto the financial burden of breast cancer. EYS financial assistance allows for ease of difficulty of unpaid bills, including co-pays and medical expenses. The emergency funding can also go toward rent/mortgages, utilities and other necessary expenses in order to help maintain and improve quality of life in the toughest of times.
This special EYS event is sponsored by Canandaigua Wegmans Community Connections team; more information about the event can be found at: embraceyoursisters.org.
Tickets are available at Winn-Seeley Gym, Wegmans, New York Wine and Culinary Arts Center and Icon Salon in Canandaigua. The New York Wine and Culinary Arts Center is located at 800 S. Main St., Canandaigua.
