Wine tasting to benefit cancer foundation Jay’s Hope

Fans of fine wine can raise money for a good cause at the Fat Tuesday Blind Wine Tasting. The event will be held from 8 to 11 p.m. March 8 at the The Blacksmith Shop at 665 Poplar St. Proceeds will benefit Jay’s Hope, a foundation that helps families battling childhood cancer.

Tasters can participate as an individual or as a team of four tasters. Each team must bring four bottles of the same wine to the Jay’s Hope office, 1157-B Forsyth St., by March 5. Votes will be placed for best wine, and the winning team will take home the reserve bottles. Tickets are $60 for a team of four and $25 for individuals.
