Wine-tasting fundraiser to benefit Concepts for Adaptive Learning

NEW HAVEN — Concepts for Adaptive Learning uncorks its annual wine-tasting fundraiser, A Thirst for Knowledge, at 6 p.m. Wednesday in Anthony’s Ocean View, 450 Lighthouse Road.

More than 90 wines from 25 wineries will be poured and a variety of delicious foods will be served.

According to CfAL Executive Director Curtis Hill, the organization works to close the technology gap and improve public schoolchildren’s education. Through its Technology Cascade & Training program, disadvantaged parents learn how to use computers and are educated on the benefits that technology can have on motivating children to learn.

Upon completion of a nine-hour basic computer training program, parents are given refurbished computers that CfAL installs in their homes.

Jazz prodigy Vincent Ingala provides the music for the evening. Tickets to the fundraiser are $50 in advance and $55 at the door. Call Hill at 203-410-3679 or email Curtis-Hill@cox.net.
