Wine tasting raises $1,000 to benefit ACE

To the editor:

The Amesbury Council on Aging would like to thank everyone who participated in the Wine and Cheese Tasting on April 17. This fundraiser was a great success and raised almost $1,000, which will benefit Amesbury Caregiver Essentials (ACE). ACE is a caregiver support program offered throughout the Northern Merrimack Valley. It was created in January 2012 through a grant from the Tufts Health Plan Foundation and continues to operate thanks to this funder. The program provides case management, education, respite and social, emotional and practical support to individuals who are caring for a family member or friend.

Angels at Home Healthcare was the premiere sponsor for this event. Their generous donation and support helped make this event possible. Jewell Towne Vineyards of South Hampton provided the wine tasting, Cabot Creamery the cheese, Port Family Home Care and Shaheen Brothers the appetizers and Lindt the chocolate treats. Thank you! We would also like to thank each of the local businesses that provide raffle prizes for the event: Flatbread Company, Amesbury Industrial, Sylvan Street Grille, Vermette’s Supermarket, Latitude Sports Club, Jewell Towne Vineyards, S. Maynard Photography, Sherwin Williams, Merrimack Valley Massage, Rosie Werner and Stop & Shop.

Many other individuals contributed to the night’s success. Thank you to Stacy of S. Maynard Photography for donating her time and talent, to Renee Keon of Merrimack Valley Massage for providing free chair massages to our guests and to Sandra Jutras and Albert Stuart for helping with those last-minute details. Lastly, we would like to thank each and every one of the evening’s volunteers. We honestly could not have done it without you.
