The Boy Scouts of America, Patriots' Path Council will be holding a Riedel Wine Tasting event on Thursday, Sept. 14, at Ferraro’s of Westfield at 6:30 p.m. Guests will sample great wine using Riedel Wine glasses, learn more about the wines, how to pour them, the effect wine glasses have and how to improve the overall enjoyment of wine. The ticket price of $150 includes hors d'oeuvres, four glasses of red and white wine rated at 90 points or better on the Wine Spectator List, four-course meal, auction and a set of Riedel Wine glasses to take home. All contributions over $50 are tax-deductible.  All guests must be 21 years or older to attend. The event is being co-hosted by community members Melanie and Bill Penders of Westfield.

The proceeds of this event provide the necessary funds send underprivileged youth to four of our camps in New Jersey and New York State. Over 4,000 youth are served in this program, and a total of 16,000 youth served in traditional Scouting in our area. Most recently the BSA has enhanced STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) content in every facet of Scouting, from summer camp to the Pinewood Derby, by developing programs that explore the STEM principles behind familiar Scouting activities. The STEM Program is another beneficiary of this event.
