Event to Benefit Disabled Resource Services

Disabled Resource Services (DRS) will be holding its 37th Annual Wine Fest on April 5, 2019 at the Marriott Fort Collins.

The event, founded in 1982, is DRS’ primary fundraising event. Continuing to grow from previous years, it will feature more than 500 wines from over 150 Colorado, American and international wineries. Local craft beer will also be on hand in recognition of its popularity.

“Wine Fest is more than a tradition. It’s a truly unique event,” said Joan LaBelle, DRS Executive Director. “This is an opportunity for Northern Colorado residents not to merely socialize. It’s a chance to make a lasting and measurable impact on people close by in their own communities.”

Knowledgeable representatives from wineries, distributors and breweries serve samples to help attendees learn to appreciate beverages through sight, smell, taste and touch. Guests will also learn about pairing by sampling gourmet tapas from nearly two dozen restaurants and caterers.

As with previous years, there’s more to Wine Fest than appreciating beverages. Guests will enjoy a photo booth, live and silent auctions, and raffles for a Wall of Wine Rack and two $500 cash prizes.

Since its inception, Wine Fest has raised more than $500,000 for people with disabilities living in poverty in Larimer and Jackson counties. Each year, proceeds from the event help provide services that eliminate barriers that prevent people with disabilities from living life to the fullest.

Tickets: $75 General Admission; VIP $100; Reserve Tasting $200. $5 more at the door. For additional information and to purchase tickets, visit winefestfc.org.
