New Dominion Women’s Club Hosts ‘Whiskey Tasting’

The New Dominion Women’s Club is hosting the “Second Annual Whiskey Tasting” fundraiser on Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. to support local charity organizations. The event will be held at a beautiful new home in the river Oaks neighborhood which is graciously provided by Capital City Builders. For more information visit www.ndwc.org.

At this private tasting, participants will savor unique spirits carefully selected by local whiskey connoisseur Joe Nelson. Hors d'oeuvres will be served to compliment the tasting, and wine will be available, as well as other beverages.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to local charity organizations. The most recent beneficiaries included SHARE, Claude Moore Farm, Safe Community Coalition, and McLean Project for the Arts. Alina LeMay, NDWC president, will be announcing new 2015-2016 beneficiaries at the event.

NDWC is actively involved with coordinating the Children’s Art Walk for the McLean Project for the Arts Fall Art Festival.
