** ANNOUNCEMENT ** – Tables & Tastings 2018

Come one, come all to our awesome and fun event… Tables & Tastings 2018

This truly unique fundraising event was created from two of the area’s premier fundraisers: Come To The Table and Wine for WERC.


  • When:    April 6, 2018 starting at 5:30 PM
  • Where:   Hart’s Hill Inn, 135 Clinton St, Whitesboro, NY 13492

Proceeds from the event will support the excellent services provided by two amazing organizations — the Women’s Employment & Resource Center and The Peacemaker Program – which include individual empowerment, conflict resolution, employment & training, advocacy, and more for women, families, and the community right here in the Mohawk Valley.

The evening will include wine, beer, and other tastings from featured local vendors while guests enjoy live music and carefully paired heavy hors d’oeuvres. Guests may also purchase tickets for our Pick-A-Prize Drawings, amazing themed baskets donated for the event with winners drawn later in the evening!

In the meantime, gorgeous Table Designs on display at the venue are available for Silent Bid or outright Purchase by anyone in attendance! The evening culminates with an exciting Last Chance Live Auction, where our auctioneer will close out each Table Design and one lucky bidder will take their prize home with them.

All this, plus dancing, awards, and more make for an evening you’re guaranteed never to forget. Please consider supporting this extraordinary event today!
