Wine and Will Power Happy Hour Raises $7,400!

Last Friday, the 4th Annual Wine and Will Power Winetasting Happy Hour was held at Panza’s Restaurant. We are thrilled to announce that the fundraiser raised $7,400 to support the goals and mission of the Brave Will Foundation. The funds raised at the event will support pediatric palliative care efforts in this region, including support for the Journey’s Program at Albany Medical Center and the foundation’s own SOAR program. The event was attended by approximately 200 people, the most we’ve ever had for one of our winetasting fundraisers.

We’d like to thank all those who attended the event, our volunteers, and those who donated. We are always so humbled by how supportive you all are when we have an event and we simply can’t express how gracious we are for your generosity.

We’d also like to thank Joe D’Andrea of D’Andrea’s Wine and Liquor for providing access to over forty different wines and liquor to sample at the event. Your efforts are always appreciated.
