Fundraiser at Iron Bridge an International Affair

The Fauquier Health Foundation, in partnership with the Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation, will host a wine tasting at the Iron Bridge Wine Company in Warrenton on Sunday, February 21, from 4 to 7 p.m. The fundraiser will feature a culinary trip around the world, with food and wine pairings from all over the globe.

Two outspoken advocates for breast cancer patients are heading up the evening. Jim Atkins, member of the Board of Directors of Fauquier Health Foundation and founding member of the Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation, and John Williams, M.D. breast cancer surgeon, have been instrumental in raising awareness and funds to provide a patient navigator for the Cancer Center at Lake Manassas. The position will serve all cancer patients, helping them to work through the health care process as they battle their disease.

Guests will be asked to contribute $125 per person for the evening of exotic food, drink and good company. For tickets or more information, contact the Fauquier Health Foundation at 540-316-2614.
