“The benefits of ‘Vines of March’ go beyond one evening, beyond the month of March, and well beyond West Hartford,” said Kyle Egress of West Hartford’s the event chair. “Our club is able to give to organizations like Johnny’s Jog for Charity, the Dictionary Project, Children’s Reading Partners, and Town that Cares programs. On a global level, we’re helping to establish a dental clinic in Uganda and joining the fight to end polio now. This evening of food, wine and friendship celebrates and perpetuates initiatives like these,” Egress added.

Two free tickets will be given to a lucky winner. The link to enter the contest is here: Rotary Club of West Hartford · 2024 Vines Contest – Win two free tickets to the event! (lglforms.com)
