The West Hartford Exchange Club will be hosting their 11th Annual Wine Tasting Event on Saturday, Feb. 4, from 6:30 to 11:30 p.m. at The West Hartford Meeting & Conference Center at the West Hartford Town Hall. 

The proceeds from the event will benefit the Exchange Club’s donation fund which donates to multiple charities throughout the year. 

The Exchange Club is partnering with Wine Cellars 4 to offer select wines from around the world, as well as local breweries such as Hog River, Fat Orange Cat, and spirits tastings including from Hartford Flavor Company and Waypoint Spirits.

Heavy hors d’oeuvres from various local restaurants and a cash bar will also be provided as well as music and dancing.

“This event sells out every year due to its popularity and it is our most important fundraiser so we look forward to the community supporting us again,” said Exchange Club President Joe Righenzi.

The West Hartford Exchange Club’s mission is to make its community a better place to live through programs of service in Americanism, Community Service, Youth Activities, and its national project, the Prevention of Child Abuse. The club sponsors the West Hartford Police & Firefighters Annual Service Awards and provides annual scholarships to Hall and Conard graduates.
