Taste for a Cause – Wine, Food, a Fantastic Venue and a Worthy Charity

Taste for a CauseThis coming Thursday, September 18th, Mark Gasbarro from Gasbarro’s Wines brings back his annual wine tasting after a brief hiatus and treats us all to Taste for a Cause, to be held at the Aldrich Mansion in Warwick RI.  If you’ve seen the movie Meet Joe Black, with Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins, then you’ve seen the mansion.  It was home to the main character and site of the incredible birthday bash at the end of the movie.  This should be an amazing venue for a quality evening of wine, food and charity.

For more info on the event you can visit:

In the past Mark’s events have raised almost half a million dollars for cancer related efforts, and this year the event will support The Program in Women’s Oncology at Women & Infants Hospital in aldrich frontProvidence, RI.  Since 1989, The Program in Women’s Oncology has been nationally renowned as a pioneer in women’s oncology, offering a unique multidisciplinary program that was the first of its kind in the nation.  Currently they are raising funds to transform the first floor of the Bernard and Ina aldrich hallWasserman Family Building, creating a new Infusion Center and Integrative Care Suite. The project will provide a modern, technologically advanced environment for care that is welcoming and comfortable for their patients and families.  They also have a challenge grant in play, so donations made either through attending this event or directly will help them meet the challenge level and almost double their money.

If you’ve been to some of the previous Gasbarro’s annual tastings you know you can expect great wines, 001_KT-5920.jpgcomplimentary food, a fun evening and a chance at some great silent auction items.  Additionally the raffle prize this year sounds impressive with 12 bottles of assorted wines assembled for the winner, along with 12 glasses – so you can use a different glass for every bottle!  If you win you’ll be delighted, and even if you don’t you’ve helped Women & Infants get that much closer to their goals.

You can support through buying an individual ticket for $75, or with larger donations at various Sponsorship levels.  With some luck the weather will be nice and the back terrace will be open as well, and the amazing views from the cascading lawns down to the water will be part of the evening.  Following are the particulars.  If we get some advance notice on the wines we’ll pass it along.  If you have any questions you can get in touch with Stacy Hart at 401-556-2553 or at

This is a very worthy cause and a great evening.  The Newport Mansions Wine and Food Festival kicks off the following day, so if you’d like an extra long weekend of world class wine then this is your chance.  We’ll see you there.  A votre sante!
