Virtual Wine Tasting Event
Help support one of the charities the Pleasantville Rotary Club donates to, St. Christopher's, a residential treatment center for youths with special needs.  This virtual vegan wine and dessert tasting takes place on Friday, December 4, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. This unique, holiday kick-off will feature an expertly-guided wine tasting by respected wine expert and entrepreneur named Francis Gonzalez, who also happens to be a St. Chris alumna!
Frances, the Founder & President of Vegan Wines and Despacito Distributors, is a successful entrepreneur and remarkable human being whose life story inspires us—all the more so because part of her journey took place at St. Christopher's. For four years, Frances was a resident of their Dobbs Ferry Campus, which she considers "one of the best things that ever happened to me."

During this fast-paced, fun-filled hour, you will experience two wines especially chosen by Frances for this tasting—a red and a white as part of your ticket purchase or sponsorship—in addition to a pairing of two vegan desserts prepared in our St. Christopher's Kitchens. Wonderful, holiday entertainment, moving profiles of residents, and the first-ever presentations of THE ETTA AWARD—named for St. Christopher's founder and pioneering child advocate, Etta Angell Wheeler—will round out the hour. PLUS you'll have the chance to bid on select auction items, including the symbolic adoption of the first, two members of their goat family—Jenny and Clark—and a golf foursome at Sleepy Hollow Country Club, one of the top-rated golf courses and country clubs in the nation, through the generosity of Board Member, Tom Leihbacher.
Tickets cost $250 each or two for $475 and include one bottle of delicious vegan red wine and one bottle of delicious vegan white wine, plus two scrumptious, vegan desserts prepared in St. Christopher's Kitchens, and paired respectively to these wines—delivered in advance to your home—plus a link to the virtual broadcast for each ticketholder for whom an email address is provided.
