Closer Look: Virtual Vino
The first Virtual Vino Scholastico presented by M&T Bank was held on August 28, 2020, and raised over $102,000. During the live, online event, participants explored their “Vino Kit,” which included a selection of wines, beers, and spirits, plus ingredients to make a featured cocktail at home. Guest speakers from the featured vineyard, local restaurant chefs, and mixologists shared secrets of wine making, recipes, and tips for preparing cocktails. At home, guests enjoyed the opportunity to gather safely with friends while raising a glass to support scholarships for HCC students. Thanks to the many sponsors and attendees that helped make our first virtual event a huge success!
“Thanks to everyone that participated in the event. Who would have thought six months ago we wouldn’t have been able to get together at the college. But we were able to do this event virtually, which was great!.”
Mark Kelehan, Chair of the Vino Scholastico
