SARATOGA SPRINGS – Sustainable Saratoga invites you to join them on June 17 @ 7 pm for a virtual WINE, DINE & DANCE fundraiser to celebrate the return of summer! This online event will feature an evening of sampling wines from the Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery, enjoying a pasta dinner from Comfort Kitchen & learning to swing dance with Tango Fusion Dance Company.
Robin Ambrosino, Sustainable Saratoga board member and one of the key organizers of this event, describes the fundraiser as an informative, fun event that will raise much-needed funds to continue our important and impactful programs in the community. “We are grateful to have the generous support of our participating businesses,” she says.
The Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery is a returning participant in Sustainable Saratoga’s summer fundraiser. Barbara Frank, Consulting Winemaker and Regional Sales Manager for the winery, explains “We are excited to be participating in the Sustainable Saratoga fundraiser again this year. Their focus on sustainability aligns well with Dr. Frank’s and we enthusiastically support such a worthy cause.”
New this year is an added dance component. Tango Fusion Dance Company will be teaching a swing dance lesson during the online event, something which COVID has them well-versed at doing these days. “The environment is an issue that is a top priority for us and we wanted to work with an organization that was a leader in the Saratoga community on sustainability,” says Tango Fusion co-director Diane Lachtrupp Martinez, who is also a Sustainable Saratoga volunteer. “And we can definitely get onboard with a fundraiser that includes wine, homemade pasta and dance and comes at a time when people are coming out of isolation and need to feel connected.”
Sustainable Saratoga’s fundraiser sold out last year. Please note that quantities are limited and the deadline to order is June 8. In other words – Get your ticket today!
