4th Annual Wine and Will Power Happy Hour on Friday, October 19th

We are pleased to announce that tickets are now on sale for the 4th Annual Wine and Will Power Happy Hour to be held on Friday, October 19th from 6-9PM at Panza’s Restaurant on Saratoga Lake. The winetasting event will give you an opportunity to sample well over thirty different wines. Your ticket cost includes unlimited tastings, pasta, appetizers, and desserts all for the cost of just $30 if you buy your tickets by October 17th. Pre-sale tickets will also include a Brave Will Foundation wineglass with a new design for 2012. Tickets can also be purchased the night of the event at the door for $35 and a limited number of wine glasses will be available for purchase for $5.

To purchase tickets in advance, please visit the 4th Annual Wine and Will Power Happy Hour page on our website.

The happy hour will also feature awesome live acoustic music from 2096, will be emceed by our good friend Tred Hulse from 99.5 WRVE, and offer chances to win some great prizes. If you’ve not had a chance to attend one of the winetasting events in the past, you have to put October 19th on your calendar. Last year’s event was truly magnificent as witnessed by both a record number of people attending and a record number of wines available for tasting. For $30, it’s a unbelievable deal for a night out with spouses, friends and family.

We would like to thank Joe D’Andrea from D’Andrea’s Wine and Liquor in Saratoga for once again helping support this wonderful event.

We look forward to seeing you on the 19th!

Lots of Smiles at the Family Fun Day

The Brave Will Foundation and the Melodies Center at Albany Medical Center hosted a Back-To-School Family Funday on Saturday, September 8th. The event was filled with activities for kids including bounce houses, a DJ, face painting, a magician, and carnival games. It was a great chance for the foundation to give our kids a chance to celebrate a little Will Power at one of our events. We were thrilled to see so many familiar faces and introduce ourselves to many new ones. It was also an opportunity for families that are currently receiving care from Albany Med as well as families that have a past connection to the hospital to get together and re-connect.

Thank you to all who helped make the day run so smoothly including our student volunteers from South Glens Falls, Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake, and Ballston Spa. The weather was on our side (thanks for looking out for us Will!) and held on just long enough to get through all the day’s activities. The pictures below are a testament to a great time had by all…

If your kids are like ours, they are starting their countdown to the day that school starts. Surely after a few days of school this week, they will need a pick-me-up this weekend to keep the summer fun going. Give you children something to look forward to this weekend by joining us at our Family Fun Day on Saturday, September 8th from 11AM-3PM at McGregor Links Country Club in Wilton.

Admission to event is free and we’re trying to provide families with a low-cost option for a little back-to-school fun.┬áThe day will include activities for the kids including bounce houses, a magician, DJ, sno cones and carnival games. Tickets for the carnival games, sno cones and bounce houses can be purchased at the door and are just ten tickets for $1. All other activities are free of charge. In addition, lunch will be available for $5 for children and $8 for adults (burgers, dogs, salads, chips, drink).

With so many of our fundraisers being adult-oriented, we hope this will be your chance to bring your children out and give them a little taste of what Will Power is all about! Come learn about the foundation, enjoy a day with family, and help us help so many!
