Stella Maris dads organize first holiday wine-tasting benefit


The Dad’s Club of Stella Maris Academy will hold its first annual Christmas Wine Tasting event from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Dec.10 at the church hall, 7669 Girard Ave., to raise funds for upgrading classroom computers.

With a goal of $8,000, the event will feature prize raffles, a slide show, soft music, food, and 30 kinds of wine for sampling, according to organizer Adam Barnow of Dick’s Liquor on Pearl St. Barnow has three children who attend Stella Maris.

“It’s going to be a nice time for parents and faculty to gather and mingle in support of the school,” Barnow said. “I’m supplying the deli meats and cheeses, and my Pearl Street neighbor, Don Carlos Taco Shop, will be serving food, too. As an added perk, anyone who pre-orders wine for the holidays at the party will receive 20-percent off through Dec. 31.”

Attire is holiday casual. Tickets are $45 per person, $75 per couple from Adam at
