H for tickets Bristol still

“It’s always a lot of fun,” said Mary Lynn Gagnon, director of the development foundation, who coordinates the event. “It’s two weeks away, there’s HERS/201712/1920436.html">still time to come.”

The event will take place March 23, from 6 to 10 p.m., at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel. The evening will include tastings of high-end wine, spirits and beer, in addition to a number of different food stations.

“The menu is amazing this year,” Gagnon said.

Tickets cost $125 a person, and should be purchased by March 15. Those interested should call 860-585-3365. Gagnon said sponsorship opportunities are also still available. Sponsors should call the same number used for ticket sales. This should also be done by March 15.

“We’re hoping for a crowd of 300,” Gagnon said.

This year will feature a new dessert extravaganza.

“I don’t want to say too much about it,” Gagnon said, keeping the details a surprise for guests.

Around 9 p.m., she added, organizers will bring out a number of different desert wines, cordials and “plenty of chocolate.”

The Festival of Wine and Spirits serves as kickoff to the three events Bristol Hospital hosts as fundraisers, including the annual golf tournament and gala. The festival will raise money for renovations being made to the hospital’s Emergency Center. This will include an expansion for more space and equipment and a new, 10-bed behavioral health unit. The whole project could cost more than $10 million.
