• Blood cancer fundraiser coming back

19 Nov

ALBANY, NY — Last year, the Taste of Compassion: A Wine Tasting was a sellout event that raised nearly $70,000 to fight blood cancers.

The 7th annual event is set for 7 to 10 p.m. Friday, January 28, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, State and Lodge streets, downtown. Again, the proceeds will go to the Upstate New York/Vermont Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

The event will feature live and silent auctions, live music, light edibles and a wide selection of wines for sampling. Tickets, available online beginning later this month, are $75, or $60 for persons 35 and younger.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services.
