ECHN held its 13th annual Salute! An Evening of Fine Wines and Gourmet Cuisine fund raiser on September 18 at Cavey’s Restaurant in Manchester. The net proceeds from the event of $50,000 will benefit ECHN’s Women’s Center for Wellness, located in South Windsor, Conn. The Women’s Center for Wellness offers an array of health and wellness services, including digital mammography; bone density scans; alternative therapy services such as acupuncture and therapeutic massage; a print and video resource library filled with books, brochures, and videotapes on many aspects of women’s health; and the services of a Breast Health Navigator, a nurse dedicated to guiding women through the healthcare system with support and education.
The evening consisted of tastings of fine wines, beer and champagne, as well as an assortment of gourmet tapas created by Cavey’s, and live and silent auctions. Live music was provided by the Goza Latin trio from East Hartford.
The event was made possible through the generosity of our corporate and individual partners. We extend our appreciation to First Niagara, Presenting Sponsor; Robinson & Cole, LLP, Vintner Sponsor;, Ambulance Service of Manchester, American Eagle Federal Credit Union, Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc., and TD Bank, Registration Table Sponsors; and Fuss & O’Neill, Inc. and The Chartis Group, Silent Auction Sponsors. We also thank all of the individuals and organizations who supported the event with donations of wine, auction items and additional financial contributions.
