    The Sparta Education Foundation (SEF) successfully hosted its Seventh Annual Wine and Craft Beer Tasting & Food Pairing fundraiser on Sunday, October 6. The event featured an assortment of gourmet food specially selected to pair with an assortment of wines and craft beers.

    This year’s event included live music by the Elisa Girlando Band, who donated their time and talent to the SEF. Guests enjoyed a wide variety of wines and beers to taste and delicious gourmet treats to pair with them.

    The SEF would like to thank The Liquor Factory in Sparta for their continued participation in providing wine and beer for the tasting, KRAVE Café + Caterers for their delicious food pairings and Opici Family Distributing and their suppliers for the wine selections. We also appreciate the Silent Auction item donated by the Russo family and J. Thomas Jewelers for their gift certificate donations as well as generous donations from South Shore Outdoor, The Pour House, Krogh’s Restaurant and Brew Pub, St. Moritz Grill and Bar, Stone Water Restaurant, Tomahawk Lake Park, The Pampered Princess, Liberty Science Center, Garlic and Oil, Sussex County Community College Foundation and Sky View Golf Club. Many thanks also to Kylen and Tom Anderson for once again hosting this event in their beautiful home, and to all the guests, school administrators and educators who came out to support our public schools.
