--Chief Development Officer Ken Alberti

The eighth annual Not-So-Snooty Beer, Wine & Cheese Tasting Adventure to support children with serious illnesses at The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp will be held on Friday, November 16, 2012 from 6pm to 8:30pm at the New England Air Museum.

The event will be hosted by Bradley Family Day, Inc., a nonprofit group of volunteers whose work is centered in and around Bradley International Airport. The group has been raising funds for The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp for 20 years.

“We are grateful for the dedicated Bradley Family Day volunteers and their work to support our campers,” said Ken Alberti, Director of Development at The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. “This event is a win-win for all -- promising plenty of fun for attendees and raising funds that allow The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp to bring ‘a different kind of healing’ to children and family members throughout the Northeast.”

Event ticket holders will sample the products of local breweries, wineries and cheese-making companies from across the state.

“The New England Air Museum is really a remarkable space in which to hold this event,” said Deb Donahue, event co-chair. “Imagine holding a party in a place where everyone can walk right up to actual antique airplanes. The food and drink are great, but the best part is supporting the seriously ill campers at The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp founded by Paul Newman.”

The New England Air Museum is located at 36 Perimeter Road, Bradley International Airport, Windsor Locks, Conn. Tickets are available in advance by contacting event co-chairs Kathy Maznicki at 860-466-9382 (kmaznick(at)travelers(dot)com) or Deb Donahue at (860) 627-3116 (deb(dot)donahue(at)theparadiesshops(dot)com).
