“More than 20 vendors are bringing fine local and international wines, fine liquors and liqueurs and craft brews,” said Linda Yule, United Way executive director.

“Your $25 ticket includes all tastings as well as complimentary snacks to cleanse your palette. Come do some selective tasting and learn more about the products direct from the representatives.”

Funds raised during the event will go towards community service agencies.

“It helps your United Way support kids, youth, families, seniors and those with mental and physical challenges to be a healthy, included member of our community,” said Yule.

Tickets must be purchased in advance at most private liquor stores or call 549-1346, or go unitedwaynocs.com.
