SEYMOUR – Treasured Time invites the community to find the perfect gift and/or the perfect wine with two fundraisers on Nov. 17 at The Inn at Villa Bianca, 312 Roosevelt Dr., Seymour.
Treasured Time’s 4th Annual Holiday Shopping Extravaganza will take place from 5-9 p.m., and will be “paired” with the Wines Around the World Wine Tasting & Buying Event from 6-8:30 p.m.
The Holiday Shopping Extravaganza will feature more than 40 vendors. Attendees pay a $5 donation entrance fee and will be entered into a raffle for incredible prizes. The evening will include a visit from Santa from 5:15-8:15 p.m., a free gift wrap table, cash bar and DJ Phyllis Kaplan from Lone Wolf Productions spinning tunes to spread the holiday spirit.
The Wines Around the World event will feature a variety of wines from different countries, appetizers and desserts. Tickets are available with a $40 donation ($70 for two) and include access to the Holiday Shopping Extravaganza.
Attendees who place a wine order at the event will be entered in a raffle to win a wine basket donated by Valley Discount Wine & Liquor. For every case purchased, mixed cases included, there will be a 15% discount and Treasured Time will receive an additional $10 donation. Wines cannot be guaranteed ready for pick up before Thanksgiving.
Wine tasting attendees will also have the chance to bid on unique silent auction items and participate in a special Wine Pull Game which features wrapped “mystery” bottles of wine for $10. Paula Pettinella will perform live music, homemade cupcakes with a boozy twist will be available from Sugar and Spice Cupcakes, and Mark Mirabella, Jr., LMT, will provide char massages.
The wine tasting event is in partnership with Donna Pace at Gathering Harvest.
