Taste your way through wines of the world and make a difference to orphaned and vulnerable children in South Africa.
Arouse your inner wine connoisseur at an intimate after-work wine tasting hosted by Investec in the heart of the City. The Care to Taste Starfish Wine Tasting event, organised by Starfish Greathearts Foundation, will raise funds to provide life-saving healthcare to South Africa’s most vulnerable children.
Guests will spend an evening sniffing, swirling and savouring a selection of 12 wines from all around the world complimented with an array of delicious cheese boards. Sparkling wine is offered upon arrival, followed by a guided tasting to fully involve the senses. Guests can then try their luck at winning a magnum of Champagne by taking part in a blind-tasting quiz.
Money raised on the night will go toward funding Starfish’s Wellness Wagons in South Africa. These mobile clinics ensure the physical, mental and social wellbeing of children living in rural areas. For as little as £5.50, each child is provided with a ‘top to toe’ check-up, as well as other important services including immunisations, testing for HIV, TB and checking for malnutrition.
The 2015 event was a fantastic success with the 150 guests raising over £7,000. This resulted in over 1,200 children receiving life-saving healthcare.
This year Starfish Greathearts Foundation is on a mission to provide over 1,300 children with access to care and better health and well being as a result.
Elinor Middleton, CEO, Starfish Greathearts Foundation commented: “Thanks to our generous friends in the wine trade donating their stunning wines, this has fast become one of the most popular events in our calendar. Now in our 4th year, it is brilliant to be able to share with our regular tasters the huge impact the money raised in one very enjoyable evening has had on the children we care for!”
The event promises to be a sell-out, so be sure to book your spot sooner rather than later!
