Niagara Gazette — The third annual Gala for Hope Niagara will feature wines and tasty treats from elite restaurants and wineries of the Buffalo-Niagara region including Arrowhead Spring Vineyards, Chateau Niagara, Opici Wine Co., Merritt Winery, Lindt Chocolates, Yancey’s Fancy, Water Street Landing, Torches and Wegmans. The event will also feature live music by award-winning local duo Busted Stuff, a basket auction and a silent auction.
The Gala for Hope Niagara will provide an excellent opportunity for patrons to tease their taste buds, explore new beverage and food options, mingle, dance and wind down after a day at work, all while benefitting the children of our community.
