The 16th Annual Gala of Wines to benefit Connections For Independent Living is tonight at Union Colony Civic Center in Greeley from 6 to 9 p.m. I have had the pleasure of hosting the event for the past 7 or 8 years and honestly, it's one of my favorite events that I get to be a part of every year. My wife loves it too...The wine, the food, the auctions! There is always really cool stuff to bid on.

Tickets are $40 at Connections, Gordon’s Liquor and UCCC and $45 at the door.

The Gala of Wines has wines from all over Colorado and the World, food and entertainment and wonderful people united in the cause of promoting independence, equality and inclusion for people with all types of disabilities.
