Sickles Market’s Wine and Cheese Tasting Fundraiser to Benefit Holiday Express will be held in the Sickles Market greenhouse, Little Silver, 7 – 10 p.m. on Friday, November 4.
Once again, Sickles Market will dress up its greenhouse in holiday style, serve gourmet foods, artisanal cheeses and pour premium wines. The event – which is denim casual – will offer live entertainment by some of the best talent from the Holiday Express band; a silent auction brimming with rare, collectible wines; and a live auction that includes the hugely popular Wine Crawls – progressive tours of some of the Jersey Shore’s best private wine cellars.
Founded in 1993 by Tim McLoone, Holiday Express is comprised of more than 600 volunteers – including over 70 professional musicians – Holiday Express delivers music, food, gifts, financial support and friendship to adults andchildren who are physically and mentally disabled, living with AIDS or homeless, as well as the isolated elderly and others.
“We are thrilled to once again help raise funds for Holiday Express,” said Bob Sickles. “The last event raised over $80,000 and we hope to raise even more this year. We salute the mission of Holiday Express and share its values of genuinely caring for our neighbors in need.”
