INSIGHT to host wine tasting and auction

EAST PROVIDENCE – INSIGHT, a nonprofit agency that provides programs and services for Rhode Islanders who are living with vision loss, will host a fundraising wine tasting and auction on Thursday, Sept. 21, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Squantum Association, 947 Veterans Memorial Parkway, Riverside.

Tickets, at $65 each, as well as a preview of the auction, are available online at .

INSIGHT Executive Director Christopher Butler said that Bottles Fine Wine will be providing 16 wines for the event that will be available for tasting. As an added twist, the identities of four of the wines will be masked and participants will be asked to “guess the grape” for a chance to win prizes during an end-of-the-night raffle. A selection of hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar will also be available.

Auction items include a seven-day stay at a Hilton Head resort, an autographed Sandy Leon baseball from the Boston Red Sox, and tickets to see Patti LaBelle at Foxwoods, available in their online and silent auction.

Proceeds from the event will go to support programs for Rhode Islanders who are blind and visually impaired, including workshops, in-home training programs, support groups, low vision evaluations, summer youth programs, and the agency’s radio reading service.
