We are less than two weeks away from the 2018 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition (FLIWC) and wines are pouring in!
This is the 18th year for the competition, which means 18 years of raising funds for Camp Good Days & Special Times, a not-for-profit organization that provides programs and services to children and families affected by cancer, sickle cell anemia, and other life challenges. The FLIWC, combined with the Camp Good Days Wine Auction Dinner is the largest Rochester area fundraiser for Camp Good Days. The wines that win gold and double gold medals at the competition are served at the wine dinner to the guests.
The Finger Lakes International Wine Competition is truly more than just a competition; it is an opportunity for judges from all over the world to taste some of the best wines worldwide, and for wineries to enter a well-known competition, while also knowing that their participation helps children and families who are going through some of life’s toughest challenges.
The competition could not happen without the wonderful judges, coordinators, wineries, and volunteers who participate.
Below is a video about one of Camp Good Days’ campers, Anders. It is through events like the FLIWC and the Camp Good Days Wine Auction Dinner that children like him have the opportunity to come to Camp Good Days, and be surrounded by other children just like him. On the shores of Keuka Lake, Anders and his friends have the opportunity to regain some of their lost childhood that cancer took from them.
