Holiday Cheer Uncorked to Benefit Georgia's Foster Children

PRNewswire/ -- A crowd of over 150 toasted Angels Over Forsyth, a charity that provides winter clothing and Christmas toys for children in foster care throughout Georgia. Through participation in the wine tasting and raffle ticket sales, the revelry generated $5,735 for the worthy local cause. Sponsored by the Venza Group and hosted by Music for Charities, attendees of the wine tasting/fundraiser enjoyed free hors d'oeuvres and live jazz music from renowned saxophonist Jeff Andrew Simpson and his trio. The indoor/outdoor splendor of the Sage Woodfire Tavern's Garden Room allowed party-goers to take full advantage of the delicious early-October air.

Throughout the evening raffle tickets were drawn. The lucky winners were awarded a wide range of prizes, such as hand-delivered breakfast baskets, designer clothing, hand-crafted jewelry, massage therapy, and a weekend stay at the Escape to Blue Ridge cabin retreat of North Georgia.

Carol Walters, Angels Over Forsyth founder, said the following about her collaboration with the Venza Group and Music for Charities: "I am so excited to have worked with such a great group of folks! I still pinch myself to see if it was so!"

The Venza Group threw the party to celebrate their recent re-branding and relocation to the Colony Park office complex in Alpharetta, Georgia. The Venza Group Team consists of courseware developers, instructional designers, and graphic designers. They serve mid to large organizations through the development of custom training materials.

Community involvement is a central part of the Venza Group's vision. With an authentic commitment to community-wide compassion, the Venza Group frequently contributes to Music for Charities events to benefit organizations including but not limited to Angels Over Forsyth.
