Virtual Holiday Wine & Dessert Tasting for St. Christopher’s

December 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

You can help change the trajectory of a young person’s life in just one hour.

Find out how by joining St. Christopher’s for an inspiring and flavorful 60 minutes this holiday season. St. Christopher’s is a safe and nurturing, residential treatment center for youth with special needs.

Join us to enjoy delicious wine and desserts, see our impact, and help our youth create futures of hope and possibility – all from the comfort of your home!

The St. Christopher’s Team is thrilled to invite you to our first-ever virtual fundraiser on Friday, December 4, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Get your tickets!

This unique, holiday kick-off will feature an expertly-guided wine tasting by noted Frances Gonzalez, Founder & President of Vegan Wines and Despacito Distributors. Frances is a successful entrepreneur with an inspiring life story—all the more so because part of her journey took place at St. Christopher’s. For four years, Frances resided at 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 specially 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 Signature Kitchens.

There will be entertainment, moving profiles of residents, and the first-ever presentation of ETTA AWARDS—named for our founder and pioneering child advocate, Etta Angell Wheeler—will round out the hour. PLUS you will have the chance to bid on select auction items, including the symbolic adoption of two members of our goat family—brothers Don and Ralph.
