Wine a bit, you’ll feel better — or so the Monroe Women’s Club hopes. The club is preparing for its first wine tasting fund-raiser, to be held at Jones Winery in Shelton on Sept. 18 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
According to Cindy Nikbin, co-president of the Monroe Women’s Club, the wine tasting event, spearheaded by co-president Adele Buck, is one of a handful of fund-raisers the organization hopes to hold before the end of the year. The club’s fund-raising events are now geared toward smaller groups of people, Nikbin said, because the number of its volunteers has dropped off over the years. With 50 tickets available for the Sept. 18 wine-tasting, the size is just right for the kind of experience the club is trying to provide to attendees, she said.
