On Friday, November 16th, the Downtown Smithfield Development Corporation will host a wine tasting to raise money for Harbor and the programs Harbor supports.

The Wine Walk fundraiser will take place from 5:30-7:30 p.m. as a continued part of the Downtown Smithfield’s monthly Third on Third series. Walkers will visit participating businesses in the downtown district to sample different regional, national and international wines at each location. Walkers will begin at Harbor’s Pizazz, located at 119 North Third Street in Downtown Smithfield, where tickets will be available for $20 per person. Walkers will then be given a wristband to wear, which will allow them to taste over a dozen varieties of wines at other downtown businesses, and the first hundred participants will be given commemorative wine glasses.

Businesses participating in the Wine Walk include Pizazz, the Johnston County Heritage Center, 231 Market Classic Printing, The Cakery, the Ava Gardner Museum, Plus Plus Consignment, Jewel’s Formals, Evans Jewelers, Artistry In Motion, The Yoga Connection, Bistro On Third, Memory Lane Frame Shop, and Aspect Financial.

There will also be live entertainment throughout the evening at Melody’s, as well as free carriage rides within the downtown district.

Harbor provides safe, compassionate, and advocacy services, resources, and programs.
