If a night of drinking fine wines and enjoying a selection of premium cigars is your kind of night, then the Make-A-Wish Northeast New York’s 8th Annual Night Of Exquisite Tastes fundraiser is one you don’t want to miss. This fantastic event is on Friday, Sept. 26 at the Mohawk Golf Club (1849 Union Street) in Schenectady. The event is put on in partnership with Park-Lane Tobacconist of Clifton Park and Edleez Tobacco of Albany. Cocktails begin at 6 p.m.

This fundraiser has it all! In addition to the wine and cigars, there will be gourmet foods to help make this an evening not to be missed. In addition, there is also a silent auction with a wide range of items donated by event sponsors and local businesses. This event is a perfect networking opportunity, or simply enjoy a relaxing evening out with family and friends.

Tickets Are Still Available

Tickets are $150 for food, drinks, and cigars, and a guest ticket is available for $75 which includes food and drinks, but no cigars. Proceeds from the event help support Make-A-Wish Northeast New York’s wish-granting program. Last year’s event drew nearly 275 guests and brought the total amount raised in the event’s history to over $300,000.

Guests will also have the opportunity to hear from a Wish Teen, and proceeds from the event will help to fund some of the 100 or so wishes that the chapter grants each year. You can register on the event’s website. For more information on this annual event, or to be a sponsor, please contact Kirsten Broschinsky at 518-782-4673.
