A virtual wine tasting to raise funds that will be used to renovate and expand our outdoor spaces in order to enhance and increase the services we are able to provide our children.
This event will be hosted digitally.

Be a part of the Community Child Guidance Clinic's Wine and Wishes fundraiser and help support children's mental health and special education services!
As much as we will miss seeing everyone in person for this year's event, we are truly looking forward to an evening of fun and celebration, livestreamed to you in the comfort of your own home. Along with entertainment, food, auctions, contests and prizes, the highlight of the event will be a guided wine tasting with Jacob Studenroth, owner of The Wise Old Dog, a boutique bottle shop in West Hartford, CT. Join in for some or all of the event, but most importantly, don't miss this chance to support the kids in our community who need our help!

Whether you donate, sponsor, or participate in Wine and Wishes, we thank you for supporting our mission. This year has been challenging for everyone, but for the kids who are already working to overcome mental health and special education difficulties, it has been especially difficult. Proceeds from this event will support the renovation, improvement, and expansion of our outdoor spaces, so that more children can access services and the benefits of therapeutic time outdoors. Once you register, we'll be able to keep you updated throughout this process, so that you can directly witness the powerful things that can happen when we come together as a community.
