ÂWe hold a wine tasting event each year to raise funds for local causes,Â said Paul McAfee, president of the Rotary Club of Amherst East. ÂThis year, we will donate $1,000 to the Amherst Museum, $500 to the Amherst Symphony Orchestra Association, and $1,000 to the Resurrection Lutheran Church Health Center, in Buffalo. We also will donate $1,000 as a scholarship for a student at the Williamsville East High School.Â
Amherst Supervisor Susan Grelick commented, ÂI think it's great that Rotary is leading the way on increased civic support for the Amherst Museum and Symphony.Â She added, ÂI hope their example inspires other organizations to show their support too.
