Letter: People Helping People Holding Fundraising Wine Tasting

The following is a letter from People Helping People: 

People Helping People is very pleased to announce that Bob Murray owner of the Café Escadrille will be hosting the 6th Annual Wine Tasting and Charity Auction with all proceeds going to support People Helping People.

We are very excited to announce that all the proceeds from the event will go directly to support “camps for kids”.   The money will be used to send children in need in Burlington to summer camps.

The Wine Tasting & Charity Auction will be held at the Café Escadrille on Sunday, February 26th from 2-5 p.m.  There will be wine tasting, gourmet appetizers, live auctions and silent auctions.  All this for just $50.00.  This year there will be only 200 tickets sold!

Anyone who attended any of the previous events will remember that as you entered the Escadrille you were greeted with a “Glass of Champagne or Wine”.   Then you entered the ballroom and the appetizers were numerous and exquisite!  

People Helping People is also pleased to announce that Frank Vozzella, Branch Manager & AVP of Northern Bank has once again reached out to People Helping People and for the fourth year will be the Major Sponsor for the Event!    Also the Weiner Family owners of Dunkin Donuts have made a special purchase for everyone attending the event this year!

The Charity Auction will be performed by Auctioneer Steve DiOrio who promises to be entertaining and with lots of great prizes to bid on.

The Auction Items this year promise to be unique with dinners from many of the local restaurants in Burlington, a coffee maker from Keurig, Disney Tickets and a robot from iRobot!    These are just a few of the amazing raffles and silent auction items that will be presented on the 26th!    You can also have the opportunity to bid on a weekend rental from the Mercedes Benz Dealership

People Helping People is the umbrella organization for the Burlington Food Pantry, the Holiday Program & Wish Tree and the Covenant for Basic Needs. These three non-profit and volunteer-supported organizations are striving to meet the basic necessities of Burlington residents who have been hit hardest by the economic downturn.

In 2016 the Food Pantry distributed over 135,000 pounds of food to families in Burlington. This was in increase over previous years.   Every year the numbers of Clients to the Pantry increase.   This past December the Wish Tree processed over 2000 gifts for a record number of families and children.  PHP also gave the seniors at the food pantry a small gift for the holiday season.   In November over 180 families in town were provided the fixings for Thanksgiving dinners.  

People Helping People is extremely grateful to Bob Murray for his continued generosity to People Helping People.  Bob has made a very strong impact on People Helping Peoples ability to help those in need these past six years.   Bob is always reaching out to our organization to assist!   This event is totally donated by Bob Murray.

Tickets can be purchased through Janet Sullivan Fitzgerald, 6 Rita Ave., sullivanfh@comcast.net (781) 244-9519, Dan DiTucci Spencer Cleaners 271 Cambridge St., & 240 Middlesex Turnpike or John Belmonte at A Whole Bunch of Flowers 326 Cambridge St., Burlington

We are hoping that this will continue to be a real community event with many residents and organizations in the town supporting our major fundraiser.  Please consider attending.  Remember only 200 tickets will be sold this year!
