Toasting a worthy cause

On Thursday, February 28, Brooklynites had the opportunity to enjoy a wine tasting while supporting a good cause.

The Guild for Exceptional Children hosted the event along with a buffet at Lai Yuen Restaurant. The wine was sponsored by Henry Harde, Inc. Wine and Liquors.

The honorary chairpersons were Andrew and Laurie Windsor and a special award was presented to Liz Amato and Peter Ferraiuolo, Esq.

The net proceeds of the event went to support the GEC’s Building Fund. According to Caroline Mansuetto, associate director for development, “This event was a huge success thanks to the support and generosity of so many people and establishments.”

According to their mission, the GEC was created “to help children and adults living with developmental disabilities lead dignified and satisfying lives, reaching their fullest potential and assisting families in every step of their journey.”
