Wine Tasting and Raffles!  Friday, May 31st from 7-9:30


Our next Ladies Night Out with a PURPOSE.

Total Wine & More will be hosting another wine tasting class for us! This event was so popular last time, it sold out in less than 2 weeks. This is our third event with Total Wine- you won’t want to miss it!

For this event we will be trying various wines from California, perfect for summer! There will be light appetizers and time to socialize before and after the class.

We will be raising funds to support Zachary Duong and his family.

Zachary is a high school freshman in Wilmington, MA. He has gone through so much in his short 15 years. He was born with a heart defect and had open heart surgery at 6 days old. At 18 months he was diagnosed with liver cancer and had his first liver transplant at 21 months of age.  Zachary was on a bypass machine at birth before his heart surgery and strong chemo drugs before his liver transplant, therefore, Zachary has lost a good amount of his hearing and has a cochlear implant and hearing aids.

Zach had a quiet couple of years then a year and half ago he started developing ascites, fluid around the abdomen. In June 2018, while trying to enjoy his 8th grade field trips, he was diagnosed with PTLD, Post Transplant Lymphoproliferative disease.

Zach was treated for Burkitts Lymphoma, a very fast moving cancer, and spent the whole Summer and most of Fall at Children’s Hospital Boston. He finished treatment in October and just recently was diagnosed with a relapse. This round of chemo is very strong and he has already been in the hospital since the middle of February with side effects and fevers. From what doctors are saying it is going to be a long road for him. A relapse is rare and needs to be treated aggressively.  

Zach’s mom, Sheila (raised in Burlington), has been by his side every step of the way. Due to the prolonged stay at the hospital this time around, Sheila had to put her job on hold, and then remove herself from it entirely. Sheila is also away from her husband and Zach’s father, Cam, and brother, Max.  As you can imagine, this puts added stress into an already stressful time.

Your support of Zach and his family is greatly appreciated.

Total Wine & More has graciously offered to lower their wine class price to $5 per person (usual cost is $20-$25 per person). Your $45 donation will include that fee. $40 per person will go directly to Zach and his family.

Gavin has had a Glioblastoma brain tumor since the age of 7. He had several operations and also radiation and chemotherapy at Dana Farber in Boston. They were not able to fully remove the tumor as it would have affected more brain functions. He has been in remission for 30 years.

This past November, he was starting to experience seizures. He went in for an MRI and they found that his brain tumor was active again and quite aggressive. Unfortunately, treatment was not successful and Gavin only has a few weeks left to spend with his family. He and his wife Melanie have three young children and live in the Pine Glen district.

Let’s show our support for the Cooper Family during this very difficult time. 100% of the money raised at this event will go directly to the family.
