We would like to encourage the community to attend the Darien Chamber of Commerce's Wine Tasting & Charity Auction being held Thursday, Oct. 24, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the BMW Darien showroom.

This year's proceeds will help support The Depot -- Darien's Youth Center, DCC community events and scholarship funds and the YWCA Darien.

The evening will feature a selection of fine wines and spirits from six distributors all sponsored by WinePort-Darien. Additionally, there will be seven food sponsors offering delectable treats from lamb chops to gold sprinkled chocolate ganache blooms. Our food sponsors include: Darien Social; Palmer's Fine Food & Catering; Rory's; Sails American Grill; Ten Twenty Post-Oyster Bar & Bistro; Atria-Darien; and Whole Foods Market.

We want to thank our sponsors for making this event possible: EPOD (formerly Executive Printing of Darien); Neil Hauck Architects; People's United Bank; Rucci Law Group; Darien Rowayton Bank; Tibbetts, Keating & Butler, LLC; and the many people and businesses who donated auction items and are volunteering their time.
