The American Clock & Watch Museum will livestream its 4th annual Wine, Women & Watches event on Thursday, September 17th at 7:00 p.m. Faced with the inability to hold its popular annual fundraiser at the museum, the planning committee came up with a fun way to gather virtually. This year, the event ticket will include a wine party package complete with a bottle of wine along with other items to help get the party started! The process is quite simple—purchase a ticket online, at the museum, or by phone and pick up your package at the museum by September 13th.
All ticket holders will be emailed a special link before the event to access the livestream kick-off portion of the evening. This year’s program highlights include: Boston-based wine specialist, Jim Smith, from Global Wines, Inc. talking about body basics a progression of wines from light to heavy, as well as food pairings; an offering about Connecticut wineries from Michelle Griffis, aka The Nutmeg Nose; Jeanne Radcliff speaking about her family’s heirloom pocket watch that they recently donated to the museum; Bob Alim, Bob Boudreau, and Kevin Prior from Broadview Manor, talking about the museum’s upcoming Mantels for the Season, while they decorate a seasonal mantel with a treasured family timepiece. “Even though we can’t hold the event at the museum this year, we are hoping that people will see this as a great way to stay connected not only to this popular event, but to the museum and all that we have to offer,” said Executive Director, Patti Philippon.
Event co-chair, Deb Quilty said, “The past three years have been such a hit with our attendees, that we didn’t want to lose the momentum.” “This virtual event gives people the opportunity to gather in smaller groups and still support the museum in a fun way,” added co-chair Kim Ciccarello.
Make sure to save the date—September 17th—and raise a glass to help the museum raise funds!
