Wine in the Courtyard
AboutFace is teaming up with The Wine Establishment Limited again this year to host the very popular Wine in the Courtyard on Saturday, September 15, 2012. The event will be hosted at the historic Berkeley Castle in the heart of the city.
In addition to tasting appetizing fare from various Toronto chefs and sipping a selection of wines from various wineries, Wine in the Courtyard provides an exceptional opportunity to purchase fine and rare wines from personal collections. At the event, we will be hosting a live and silent wine auction with a large and varied collection of wines.
To help us present an esteemed display of fine wines for the auction, AboutFace has appointed Mr. Zoltan Szabo to source and collect wines on our behalf. Mr. Szabo is a Toronto-based Sommelier, wine consultant and educator; he is a member of the Wine Writers' Circle of Canada, and contributes with articles and tasting notes to a variety of prominent publications and organizations. Today, Zoltan consults with restaurants, judges nationally and internationally, and speaks at wine-soaked events.
We invite you to join us with a contribution of wine for our event! If you are interested in donating product from your private collection AboutFace would be pleased to provide you with a tax receipt. To learn more about donating your wine to AboutFace, contact Zoltan directly at 647-381-9463 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
AboutFace is a registered charity with Revenue Canada Agency and must follow RCA charitable giving guidelines and policies. For this reason, we have appointed an independent wine appraiser, Mr. Robert Jull, to evaluate every bottle of wine donated. On his recommendation, AboutFace will provide an official tax receipt for the appraised value of your gift-in-kind. Should you have any questions about this policy and process, please contact Anna Pileggi, Executive Director of AboutFace, at email@example.com or 416-597-2229 x24.
Wine in the Courtyard attracts an amazing group of Toronto's wine connoisseurs. It is an intimate gathering of guests aged 30+ who are energized to mix and mingle, and purchase great wines for a great cause.
