“Galloping Grapes: A New York Wine Event,” set for Friday, August 6, at the Saratoga Race Track, will offer 30 or so wine and food vendors crom throughout the state in a tasting to benefit the Times Union’s Classroom Enrichment Program and the Times Union Hope Fund. Advance tickets are $25, with a $30 admission at the door.
According to event coordinator Greg Stapleton, the Classroom Enrichment Program provides teachers and students in the Capital Region with newspapers and other learning tools to help them reach state educational standards. The Times Union Hope Fund works with local after-school and summer programs to help at-risk students have more opportunities to participate in these programs.
The New York Wine and Grape Foundation is assisting in the organization of the event. Tickets will be available once the event website is operational. I’ll keep you posted.
