East Aurora residents, John Mineo and Vicki Feine Mineo are chair couple of the 10th Annual Harvest Festival, a Celebration of Hospice, Friends and Family, presented by the Buffalo Bills.The gala benefit for Hospice Buffalo will be held Friday, Oct. 15 at 6:00 p.m. at the Adam's Mark Hotel in Buffalo.
"We are very excited and thrilled to be chairing this wonderful event," said John Mineo. "The hard work and dedication shown by both the volunteers and staff alike is what makes Hospice the wonderful and caring organization it is today. We invite all to join us for an evening of great wine, fabulous food and fun!"
The festivities begin with an elaborate wine tasting and silent auction followed by a gourmet dinner with wine accompaniment from Cartlidge & Browne Winery of Napa Valley. Cartlidge & Browne wines, while definitely Californian in fruit, have a distinctly "French" or "European" styling, shaped by winemaker Paul Moser's extensive time working in wineries in Burgundy and the Loire, France.
Immediately following dinner, a one-of-a-kind live auction, live music from Twilight and dancing will begin. Tickets are $200 each or corporate tables of ten for $2,800.
This year's event also features a Grand Prize Drawing of $10,000 Cash. The winner does not need to be present to win. A limited number of tickets are available now for $50 each or 3 for $125 for the drawing. For raffle, event tickets or for more information visit **HospiceBuffalo.com** or call 686-8090.
