WVC Oktoberfest

Beer Tasting and Music to Benefit The WVCoktoberfest-all-whitebackground-web

Wednesday, October 26th, 6:30pm

What an absolute blast our first-ever Oktoberfest was!

We loved the cider and beers selected by Patrick Watson of Back Label Wine Merchants and Stinky BKLYN in Chelsea.  It was an evening that absolutely put the fun in fundraiser!

Our long-time friend Craig Pomranz once again served as our Emcee, and performers Sarah Blaze, Laura Green, Amine Hachem and Marguerite Easterbrook sang to our toasting and raised the roof!

Vielen Dank to all who came!  Prost!
