ECHN held its 11th annual Salute! An Evening of Fine Wines and Gourmet Cuisine event on April 26 at Cavey's Restaurant in Manchester. This exciting evening raised $49,000, which will benefit ECHN's Women's Center for Wellness, located in South Windsor, CT.
The Women's Center for Wellness offers an array of health and wellness services including digital mammography, bone density scans, alternative therapy services including acupuncture and therapeutic massage, a print and video resource library filled with books, brochures, and videotapes on many aspects of women's health and the services of a free women's health coordinator to help women in need of services navigate the healthcare system.
Highlights of the evening, adding to the already festive-like atmosphere, included celebrity wine pourers Diane Smith and Ray Dunaway, a large variety of wines, including a number of award winning Australian wines that made their American debut at Salute!, delicious hors d'oeuvres during the wine tasting, followed by dinner, and a silent and live auction.
The event was made possible through the generosity of our corporate and individual partners. We would like to thank our Presenting Sponsor Robinson & Cole, LLP as well as our additional support provided by Fuss & O'Neill, Griffin York & Krause, Allscripts, 2 FLY Wines, Rockville Bank Foundation, Inc, and TD Banknorth Group, Inc. Special thanks to all the individuals and organizations that supported the event with donations of wine, auction items and additional financial contributions.
