WHAT: Sunset Wine Party is hosting an inaugural New Canaan event: a festive, upscale wine tasting evening at the Country Club of New Canaan. All net proceeds benefit Filling in the Blanks, a local nonprofit which supports area children experiencing hunger by providing them with meals on the weekends. Sunset Wine Party was created by Connecticut-based wine connoisseur, Paula Alonso, who wanted to share her passion for wine while raising money for important local causes. Filling in the Blanks was founded by mothers and community activists, Shawnee Knight and Tina Kramer, who created the nonprofit as a way to bring together their community, children, food and charity. The nonprofit provides weekend meals to children in need who are eligible for the free or reduced lunch program. Thirty-plus wines from Presenting Sponsor and retailer, DB Fine Wines, are to be showcased, plus food, music and more. Magnum Sponsor is BMW of Darien and Super Sponsors are Elements Medical Aesthetics and Rock, Paper, Scissors Custom Events.
