Annual Wine Tasting Fundraiser

Wednesday, May 31st, 5:30-7:30pm 
***Talanian Hall, Holy Trinity Armenian Church
145 Brattle Street, Cambridge

Thank you for making our Annual Wine Tasting Fundraiser a success! Thank you everyone who donated and came out for this year’s event. While the weather was expected to rain us out, we still managed to raise a $12,000 scholarship to donate to a local Smith student! And, we had fun doing so!

Thank you again to the wonderful Jay Farber and Magnolia Wines, who do so much to help us with this event year after year. Thank you also to Green City Growers, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe’s for their generous donations and support of this event.

***Due to forecasts of thunderstorms, we have changed the location of this event to be indoors. We are so thankful to Webb and Jeff Brown for having volunteered their lovely garden–if only the weather had cooperated.

In addition to celebrating the onset of warm weather and enjoying dynamic wines hand picked by our friends at Magnolia Wines, the event is special in its objective to raise scholarship funds in support of a local student studying at Smith.

Admission at the door will be $30. (All tickets will be held at the door.)

Checks may be made out to the Smith College Club of Cambridge and mailed to the following address:
Smith College Club of Cambridge
P.O. Box 400237
Cambridge, MA 02140

As always, we continue to welcome and encourage your generous donations. It is not too late to make your contribution to the scholarship fund. Please consider the value of this scholarship for Smith students.

We’re incredibly proud that the SCCC community has enabled us to contribute at least $10,000 for the past four years!  To ensure we can continue this level of support, though, we need to add new sponsors to this generous group.  If you’re interested in helping a local Smith student reap the fullest rewards of her education, please consider becoming a sponsor for this special event.

Volunteer at On The Rise

We will be volunteering as part of a Service Day to help them in whatever capacity they most need, like sorting clothing, small cooking projects, handy work, and decorating for the Christmas holiday. Their mission statement is:

“On The Rise creates a community where women have the relationships, safety and resources they need to move out of homelessness. We engage with those most in need and support their initiative and strength as they move beyond crisis and discover new possibilities.”

Contact to RSVP or for further information. Note there is limited space!
