5th Annual Celebrity Wine Pairing Held

On Monday October 26th, Brian and Amber Moorman along with their PUNT Foundation hosted the 5th Annual Celebrity Wine Pairing presented by Sgroi Financial at Asbury Hall on Delaware Avenue.

The night began with a spirit, beer and wine tasting and silent auction while guests were invited to mingle with Brian and his teammates. There were a number of Bills players, including, Rian Lindell, Lee Evans, Geoff Hangartner, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Andy Levitre, Jonathan Stupar, Garrison Sanborn, Chris Kelsay, Jon Corto, Paul Posluszny, Keith Ellison, Thurman Thomas, Bryan Scott, David Nelson, Eric Wood, Ashton Youboty, Arthur Moats, Brian Brohm, Antonio Coleman, Levi Brown, Kyle Williams, and others on hand to host tables, and mingle with fans.

In addition to the opportunity to mingle with some of Buffalo’s most notable celebrities from the world of professional sports, guests enjoyed a 5 course gourmet menu paired with exquisite wine from Moet Hennessey, followed by a live auction and entertainment by John Kaczorowski, a three time cancer survivor. John took the stage along with his wife, Sarah, to sing and play the guitar and piano.

The event raised over $80,000, which will help to support the P.U.N.T. Foundation’s family-centered programs, provide assistance and events designed to enrich the lives of children in WNY fighting cancer, and provide them with special memories.

The P.U.N.T. Foundation would like to thank our sponsors, supporters and volunteers who without their continued support we would not be able to assist families in WNY affected by pediatric cancer including: Sgroi Financial, Empire Distributing North, Moet Hennessey Estates and Wine, Jim Beam Global, ConesusFest for Charities, Veterinary Clinic of Hamburg Village Clay, Citadel Broadcasting, Channel 7 WKBW, Nixon Peabody, and Verizon Wireless.
