August 14, 2013NORTH FULTON, Ga. "We support people with special needs to enable them to lead fulfilled lives physically, intellectually and socially."
Such is the creed of enAble of Georgia, one of North Fulton's local nonprofit organizations. Tuesday, July 16, at Dal Cuore Artisan Pantry, North Fulton residents gathered to participate in the enAble of Georgia Foundation 2013 Summer Wine Auction.
Together with Wine Gorilla, Dal Cuore and 75 guests, enAble of Georgia raised $35,000 to assist enAble's mission of enriching the lives of those with special needs. Auction packages included a variety of fun prizes ranging from tickets to the Atlanta Botanical Garden to a tour of the Georgia State Capitol with Sen. John Albers. Of course, each package included a delicious wine to compliment its prize.
"Vintage wines, a wine poster signed by artist/actor Tony Curtis, plus highly collectable wines by Heidi Barrett, one of America's premier winemakers, were unique auction items enAble offered its guests this year. This is an annual event you need to calendar now for July 2014," said Nancy Lindgren, special project manager for enAble of Georgia.
EnAble's CEO Harry Stern could not agree more.
"EnAble's annual wine auction is a fun highlight for so many members of our community," Stern said. "Family members of persons we serve, Board members and community members come together to bid on great wines, enjoy great food and raise funds to support programs that serve persons with disabilities."
