At a local fundraiser, residents raised their glasses and quenched their thirst for helping others.
The Community Career Center held a wine tasting event at Peterson’s Spirits and Fine Wines.
Proceeds will help fund efforts to assist unemployed residents in finding a job.
The Community Career Center offers one-on-one guidance with career counseling, interviewing, networking, and resumes.
“I’ve got a really good friend who loves to do a lot of charity work,” said Community Career Center Executive Director Kimberly White. “She’s a Vice-President for a winery company based in California. And I thought it would be a great way to not only help her showcase her wine, but to also benefit our center.”
When they weren’t sipping Pinot Grigio or Merlot, residents met some of the future contestants for the next “Dancing with the Celebrities event.
The competition pits Naperville Notables against each other in a dance-off much like the show “Dancing with the Stars,” and is the center’s largest fundraiser of the year.
