On October 11, a sold-out crowd of more than 800 people enjoyed food and wine samplings from 20 local restaurants and more than 100 wines from around the globe at the 13th annual Festa Vino, held in the Marcelle Athletic Complex.
In honor of Siena’s 75th Anniversary Celebration, more than $75,000 was raised to benefit the Saints Alive! Athletic Fund and the McCormick Center for the Study of the American Revolution, formerly the Center for Revolutionary Era Studies. This was a net increase of 35% over last year’s proceeds.
The funds raised will be supplemented by the sale of St. Francis wine packaged in commemorative, limited edition bottles etched with Siena’s 75th Anniversary graphic. If you are interested in purchasing a bottle, please contact Alumni Relations at 518-783-2430.
