Wine Tastings

The Art Connection held two Wine Tasting events in 2009 to reach out to new friends and fundraise towards the Matching Gift Fund. Betsy and Sam enjoy the event!


In March, 33 new friends of The Art Connection gathered to enjoy a cultural celebration of art, music, food, and wine hosted by Art Connection director Jim McDonald and wife Joni. Those in attendance learned what grapes make up Champagne (Chardonnay and Pinot Noir) and that their gifts would be matched by our matching gift fund!

In June, 15 new friends gathered at The Art Connection office to enjoy our first office art show featuring donated works by Cora Roth, while researching an answer to the age-old question: what type of wine goes better with pizza – red or white? Judging by the chanting of the group, the Barbera seemed to win, although there were a few nods to beer as well.
