Bar Harbor Banking and Trust Company will present the third annual Mount Desert Island Wine Classic, a wine tasting and auction, to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hancock and Washington Counties. The event will take place on July 24, 2003 from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m. at the Neighborhood House in Northeast Harbor.
In addition to the more than 100 wines from around the world available for tasting, guests will be treated to a unique silent auction. Items available for bid include three magnificent bronze sculptures by Lorenzo Ghiglieri: First Jump—a mare and her colt; Mother and Child; and Flying Colors—American eagle and flag. Original paintings and prints by Maine artists, jewelry and pottery from local artisans, and the work of Maine photographers will also be presented at the event. In addition, there will be many packages including dining at a wide array of Hancock County establishments and recreational activities for the sedate and the adventurous.
“This event is made possible by the generosity of businesses and individuals who have donated to benefit children in Hancock and Washington Counties,” said Pat Saunders, program director. “We are pleased to have returning artists, as well as returning guests for the evening. We have had people call for reservations who made vacation plans around this event.”
The evening will also include scrumptious dining buffets and hors d’ouvres by Sawyer’s Catering, and live music by the Downeast Swing Band.
The MDI Wine Classic is sponsored by Bar Harbor Banking and Trust Company in cooperation with Sawyer’s Specialties of Southwest Harbor.
The cost of the event is $45 per person; $50 per person after July 21. All reservations must be made in advance. No tickets will be sold at the door.
