Greetings to all,

We now have our plans for the 2016 Potomac Chapter National Federation of the Blind wine tasting. Giving tickets to the wine tasting is an outstanding holiday present where you can share with friends and
family while benefiting the Potomac Chapter. This year’s wine tasting
will be held at Bistro 360, a new and exciting venue which is certain to be fun and delicious.

We hope that you can join us for a wine tasting event and seminar to
benefit the Potomac Chapter of the National Federation of the Blind.
The event will fund outreach programs for blind youth, seniors and
working age adults. The deadline to RSVP is Tuesday, February 2, so we can provide a final count to the organizers. Drop ins that day will not be accepted due to limited space.

The details:

National Federation of the Blind Wine Tasting
Saturday, February 6, 2016
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Cost:  $40 per person.  Please make checks payable to PC-NFB.  Sorry, but credit cards can be accepted.

An exciting variety of wines will be offered along with pairings of
fine cheeses, chocolate, crackers, and breads.  An wine expert from
