The Junior League of Greater Springfield’s 5th Annual Beer & Wine Tasting fundraiser is coming up next weekend. Here to tell us about it are Jackie Martucci and Meghan Schepart.
The event will be held at The Wherehouse?, 109 Lyman Street in Holyoke on Saturday, April 6th from 4 PM – 7 PM.
It features wine and beer tastings, a raffle prizes, refreshments, and music. All proceeds will go directly towards our scholarship fund, which has been providing scholarships to graduating female high school seniors in the greater Springfield area since 2002. These scholarships are awarded to candidates who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in voluntarism and community service.
The Junior League of Greater Springfield is a not-for-profit organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities. They focus on assisting children and families in need and promoting literacy and education. They have worked with many amazing organizations to accomplish these goals, including: Kate’s Kitchen, Neighbors Helping Neighbors Food Pantry, Easthampton Community Center, Lorraine’s Soup Kitchen and Pantry, Square One, Christina’s House, Holyoke Backpack Program, and the Springfield Museums. They have also collected and distributed thousands of books in Springfield and Holyoke as part of the “Little Red Bookshelf” program.
