Tantalizing Tastes of Italy Savored at Wine for Wisdom!

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

A warm and heartfelt Grazie (Thank You!) to all our wonderful guests and sponsors who made Polk State College Foundation’s fourth annual Wine for Wisdom experience an overwhelming success!

The exciting and romantic land known as “The Beautiful Country” was Polk State College Foundation’s latest stop on its annual Wine for Wisdom World Tour, in which the community joined together for an elegant evening of fun and philanthropy, giving Polk State students a lifetime of opportunity! E delizioso! (It’s delicious!)

On September 12, 2013 at Polk State College, approximately 400 guests enjoyed the essence of Italy’s warm and wonderful culture and its mouthwatering cuisine paired perfectly with wine that send palates the world over to heavenly heights of joy!

Once again proudly presented by the Boyer Building Corporation, this year’s festivities were a veritable Roman Empire of iconic Italian cuisines and vintages as we celebrated the eternally popular culture of Italy. Guests savored their way throughout classic Italian regions in one fabulous evening, their experience carefully sculpted by a master chef and wine expert.

Wine for Wisdom’s destination this year was especially fitting, as the delicious relationship between gourmet dining and fine wine is a tradition deeply embedded in Italian culture. Their scrumptious culinary delights are made to be paired with various fine wines for maximum dining enjoyment!

And just as important as the food, wine and festivities is the sense of community Italy embodies – and our guests experienced that same camaraderie as they gathered to break bread in the company of their fellow philanthropic community and corporate leaders. As always, their generous contributions to this event will help make the dreams of a higher education for Polk State College students become a reality through Polk State College Foundation scholarships.
