The Annual Wine, Beer and Food Fest hosted by YEA! proved to be a huge hit with a record 130 people in attendance. Held at the beautiful Forest Hill Field Club in Bloomfield, NJ, the record-setting crowd enjoyed an afternoon of wine and beer from around the world paired with sumptuous small bites as they supported the programs of Youth Education in the Arts. Silent auction items and raffles also proved to be a hit with attendees. This year we also offered a Wine Connosour class to a limited selection of people who enjoyed some extra wine information. We would like to thank all of our generous supporters who came out to spend an afternoon bolstering the programs that mean so much to so many.
We would like to extend a very special thank you to the Planning Committee who went above and beyond to create such a special event. Jim Messina and Greg Pych served as the Co-Chairpersons and worked to spearhead putting the event together. They were joined by Cindi DeVivo, Barbara Messina, Robin Karpinski, Dan Kocher, Tom Maiello, Eric Sabach, Donna Schiavone, Kelly Smith, and John Wagner who worked tirelessly to make sure the event was a smashing success.
We're already looking forward to next year's Wine, Beer, and Food Fest on April 26, 2020. Mark your calendars and we'll see you there!
