On Friday, May 8, Bedell Cellars and the Friends of the Sisson Family, will host a fundraiser from 6-9 p.m.
From the event website:
memory to help financially support his wife Alice Wise and their
children Ethan and Emma during these difficult times. Our primary goal
is to enable Alice, Ethan and Emma to remain in their family home as
the children mature and to allow the family to maintain a continuing
quality of life within their community of family and friends. Our
enduring friendship and love of Alice, Ben, Ethan and Emma will help
Alice raise her beautiful children. Providing supplemental financial
support is greatly needed over the next few years. We encourage all
friends and family to attend our annual fundraiser in Ben Sisson's
honor and to continue to tithe whenever possible. The joy Ben Sisson
gave all of us in life, we can give back now, in love.
This event will be a celebration of Ben
Sisson's life. It will be an
opportunity to share your favorite stories with friends and colleagues.
Wine and appetizers will be served at the beautiful Bedell Cellars
tasting room, and a Silent Auction will be held with a variety of items
donated for the cause.
Nena, Jackson and I will be going and I'd encourage every person who reads this blog to attend. There will probably be some amazing auction lots that any Long Island wine lover would want to bid on.
