West Hartford Town Hall was hopping on Saturday, March 4 as over 200 folks joined members of the West Hartford Rotary Club in celebrating “The Vines of March Wine Tasting and Auction.” 

Attendees enjoyed wine, beer and spirit tasting courtesy of Harvey’s Wine and Spirits, as well as food offerings donated by area restaurants. Local businesses donated items for live and silent auctions, and a 50/50 raffle was held.

All expectations were surpassed and over $40,000 was raised, funds which the Rotary Club will use to support numerous community activities, charities, and agencies in West Hartford community.

Members of West Hartford Rotary are now looking forward to once again serving up hamburgers and hot dogs at Celebrate West Hartford in June!

The Rotary Club is an international service organization celebrating its 100-plus years of service, based on the premise of developing friendship among the community’s business and professional leaders by carrying out projects that improve the quality of life in the community, as well as advancing international understanding, goodwill, and peace.

And save the date for March 2, 2024 – The Twelfth Annual Vines of MARCH.
