The August Group will be hosting “Connecting Rochester: an Evening of Wine and Mingling” to benefit Warrior Salute on June 18, 5:30-8:30 pm at Nazareth College Arts Center, 4245 East Ave, Rochester, in the town of Pittsford. The event is $20 per person with all proceeds going to Warrior Salute. Wines will be provided by Lost Vineyards. The idea for this event came about as a way to utilize the business networking atmosphere of Rochester while giving back to the community.
