Wine tasting to benefit Milford Literacy Center

The 18th Annual Literacy Center of Milford Auction and International Wine Tasting will be held on Friday, October 12, 2012, 7:00-10:00 pm at Westwoods Ballroom, West Haven, CT.  Tickets can be purchased in advance by calling the Literacy Center at 203-878-4800 or  Our fine area restaurants will provide an opportunity to sample their specialties while Scott Griffin’s, “On The Rocks Spirit Shop” will offer samplings of a variety of wine, beer and cordials.  Hors D’oeuvres, desserts and chocolate creations from area restaurants and caterers will also be served.  There will be raffle baskets and a live auction.  Auction items include hand made gifts, gift certificates to local restaurants, theater tickets, floral arrangements, sports tickets, art, jewelry and much more. 

We will be featuring dancers from The New England Ballet and Chef Neil Fuentes.  Neil Fuentes’ love for food began early, helping his mother in their Venezuelan kitchen.  In 1995, he moved to the U.S. and his vibrant personality, Latin flair, and love for entertaining catapulted Neil into a high volume catering business for a leading Connecticut restaurant group.  His numerous appearances on WTNH Channel 8, Ct Style as the Sensational Singing Chef fuses together Neil’s singing and dancing talents with his artistic culinary side.

Proceeds from this event support the Literacy Center’s programs throughout the year.  The Center tutors adults in ESL, GED preparation, reading and writing as well as the offers family literacy programs in our community.
