Another Round: Wine-Tasting Benefits Georgia's Children, Again

/PRNewswire/ -- Again, the Venza Group generated a positive impact on the lives of Georgia's foster and adoption families by sponsoring their 2nd Annual Charity Wine-Tasting Event. The crowd sipped and sampled in assistance of Supporting Adoption and Foster Families Together (SAFFT), a newly established organization that declares the following belief: BUILDING and MAINTAINING a supportive foundation for all caregivers improves the overall lives of children in care. This year's event raised $4,415 from the wine tasting, a silent auction, and raffle ticket sales. Coordinated by the Venza Group and Music for Charities, attendees of the event enjoyed free hors d'oeuvres and a live music performance by the Tom Willner Trio. Stirred by the lovely autumn air, the party-goers enjoyed the indoor/outdoor comforts of the Sage Woodfire Tavern's Garden Room for the second year in a row.

Raffle tickets were drawn throughout the evening. The lucky winners were awarded a wide range of prizes, from oil changes to hand-crafted jewelry. Just like last year, a weekend stay at the Escape to Blue Ridge cabin retreat of North Georgia was the grand prize. The silent auction included items such as hot-air balloon rides and donated pieces from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Stacy and Ashley, SAFFT Director, said the following about their collaboration with the Venza Group and Music for Charities: "The team from Venza Group and Music for Charities truly delivered an amazing night for SAFFT. We raised much needed funding for our organization which will directly benefit the Foster and Adoptive children of Forsyth County Georgia. We want to thank both organizations along with our generous sponsors for hosting such an amazing event and we look forward to working with them in the future on more collaborative efforts to help our children in need."
