Annual Wine Tasting Event Benefits Genetic Counseling Program at Concord Hospital Breast Care Center

Thanks to the collaborative efforts of Concord Hospital, New Hampshire Oncology-Hematology, PA (NHOH) and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, cancer patients have access to genetic testing and counseling at Concord Hospital Breast Care Center. The program is led by national and local experts and enables cancer patients to learn if they are at high-risk of developing cancer. Early identification allows patients the opportunity to work with their healthcare providers and take proper steps for risk reduction and increased surveillance.

The community has a chance to make a difference in the lives of their family, friends and neighbors and support Concord Hospital’s Genetic Counseling Program by attending the annual Heart of the Grape Wine Tasting event. The event will be held on Friday, February 13 at The Courtyard by Marriott Grappone Conference Center in Concord. General admission is from 7 to 9 pm, VIP admission is from 6 to 7 pm and back this year is Grape Expectations, a wine glass seminar from 6 to 7 pm. VIP admission includes the opportunity to sample high end wines, entrance to the Heart of the Grape wine tasting main event and your own Riedel wine glass. Grape Expectations admission includes the opportunity to meet with a Riedel representative who will demonstrate the relationship between the shape of the glass and our perception and enjoyment of wine. Grape Expectations participants will have entrance to the Heart of the Grape wine tasting main event and bring home four Riedel tasting glasses. Limited tickets are being sold.

The benefit, presented by Rymes Propane & Oil and hosted by Martignetti Companies of New Hampshire, Inc., offers guests the opportunity to learn about and experience some of the most prestigious and respected wines from prominent wineries throughout the world all while enjoying beautiful music performed by Lakes Region Big Band.
