United Way of Broward County Wine Event

The media team with the United Way of Broward County asked if I’d be kind enough to help get the word out about their upcoming Red & White – Wine and Culinary Delight event. I have not been fortunate enough to attend the event in the past, however any charity that’s not only doing good things, but doing them via food and wine is ok in my book. Below is the media release, with information about the event.




FT. LAUDERDALE, FL – (February 11, 2011) – Sample delectable foods prepared live by Fort Lauderdale’s top chefs and exquisite wines from all over the world at United Way of Broward County’s “Red & White – Wine and Culinary Delight”, presented by Consolidated Credit Counseling Services, Inc. and Premier Beverage Company.
