United Way of Kent County launched a new fund raising program with a special Wine Tasting event at the Imperial Hotel on Saturday, March 27. A packed room of supporters sampled a variety of wines and listened to the delightful informative and entertaining remarks by the Hotel’s Joe Dolce. Joe knows his wine and he also knows his community and has worked to assist United Way with this effort. In addition to the usual fee for wine tastings, participants provided a contribution to United Way which will help meet the goal of supporting 19 local Member Agencies.

 

United Way President, Tom Beckett, introduced several Member Agencies and described the work of United Way in Kent County. Beckett highlighted the work of Upper Shore Council on Family Violence by saying, "during periods of stress, family violence increases. It is necessary to take steps to relieve the distress and sometimes to provide safe and secure housing for victims. United Way is proud to be a supporter of this work."

 

Future special events have been planned at Two Trees Restaurant in Millington and a vineyard walk at Crow Farm in Kennedyville.
