BB’s Buddies Wine Tasting Benefit

September 15 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free
Best Free Wine Tasting - Asheville, NC - Table Wine

Join us for a BB’s Buddies Wine Tasting Benefit!  $5-$10 suggested donation at the door with all of the proceeds going back to BB’s Buddies and the Walk to End Alzheimer’s.  In addition, Table Wine will donate 10% of the day’s sales back to BB’s Buddies!

Last year, my good friend, long time customer, and community pillar Robin Boylan lost his lovely wife Barbara (the BB in BB’s Buddies) to Alzheimer’s. It was just a few years ago that I lost my grandfather to the same disease. As Robin says, “I hate Alzheimer’s, and that is why I am walking on September 15 in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. I walk so that no other families have to face this disease. I walk for more funding for more resources for caregivers. I walk for more funding for research into prevention, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer’s.”  I hate Alzheimer’s too, but I love the Boylans and feel compelled to take action.

Stop by any time between 2-5 p.m. to sample some delicious wines, and take action with us.  All of the door proceeds ($5-$10 suggested donation) and 10% of the day’s sales will go back to BB’s Buddies and the Alzheimer’s Association.  This promises to be a fun and uplifting day of wine, community, and fundraising.  If you can’t make it to the tasting, you can join Robin earlier in the day at the Walk to End Alzheimer’s — click here for more information on that or click here if you would like to make a donation to BB’s Buddies.  Robin and his family thank you for your support.
