Sips, Suds, & Sweets At Home to Benefit Senior Wishes
April 28, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$45
Senior Wishes, a local non-profit, will be offering a take-out version of its wine, beer, and dessert sampling fundraiser on April 28, 2022. Tickets will be on sale from March 25-April 21. In addition, a virtual basket raffle will run from March 25 to May 2.
Presented by Geico, with additional support by many caring corporate sponsors, this year’s event will be a boxed sampling of beer, wine, and sweets for participants to enjoy at home. A $45 donation will allow guests to pick up their event box at one of three locations: Fox Run at Orchard Park, GEICO in Getzville, and the United Church Manor in West Seneca on Thursday, April 28 between 3pm and 6pm. Delivery within 30 miles can be arranged for an additional fee. Deadline to register is April 21. Specific details, including a link for the basket raffle which is open to the public, can be found at www.seniorwishes.org or on their Facebook page.
Senior Wishes grants wishes to lower-income seniors living independently and to those living in care facilities in Erie, Niagara, Orleans, Genesee, and Wyoming counties. Wishes have included attending sporting and cultural events, visiting a loved one not seen in years, and re-engaging a senior in a hobby. Simple needs are also considered.
In 2021 HERO Boxes were delivered to local Veterans, including nine WWII Veterans, holiday gifts were delivered to 277 seniors as part of the organization’s “Sips, Suds & Sweets” event for seniors with little or no family, and Valentine’s Day was celebrated this year by distributing stuffed animals and goody bags to residents of Absolut Care in Gasport.
Community support of this year’s event will assist the program’s ability to continue these important programs throughout 2022.
