Wine Tasting and Fundraiser for Alzheimers in Springfield

alzheimer's eventSPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) – Residents got together for a night of wine tasting and fundraising Friday night.

The event took place at Elegant Affairs on Main Street in Springfield. It raised money for a charity that is near and dear to Diane Swanson’s heart, owner of Swanson Meeting and Event Planning.

“[I] wanted to have an event that would benefit Alzheimer’s Association because my mom has Alzheimers and it’s very near and dear to my heart and I really want them to find a cure,” she said.

A portion of the funds raised go to The Alzheimer’s Association.
