About Hudson County CASA:

HCCASA serves children from across Hudson County. A non-profit organization located in Jersey City, HCCASA is part of a state network. Nationally, there are more than 1,000 CASA programs working in local communities.

HCCASA volunteers are appointed by family court judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure these children don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in an inappropriate group or foster home. They stay with each case until it is closed, and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home.

There are currently more than 60 volunteers donating their time and energy as advocates to HCCASA. Our volunteers represent a true cross section of the community: active and retired professionals who have worked in a variety of industries, business owners, and graduate students, of all ages and ethnic backgrounds.

Filed under: Hoboken,Turtle Club,Wine Tastings — Tags: , , , — TheBoken @ 9:05 AM

Below is a release for a blind tasting event from the Woman of Wine Sense at the Turtle Club the last day of the month this February…

Women for Wine Sense NJ Chapter Presents:

Scrimp vs. Splurge – A Blind Tasting

Blind Tasting Women for Wine Sense 2-29-2012

For February we wanted to get back to our roots as a wine education group and offer a blind tasting event.

So you think you’re a wine expert with the palate of Robert Parker? We’ll see about that! Over the course of the evening you will be presented with 4 pairs of wines. Each pair will be the same grape variety. As a side note, it is always a grape variety, and a wine made from a single grape variety is known as a varietal wine. See the education never ends! It will be up to you to determine the grape and the price point of the wine.

This is a unique opportunity to explore your palate, figure out what wine works for you and what you are truly looking for in a wine. With the focus on fun and education we will be covering each pair and providing tasting sheets, notes and regional information on all the wines. Light appetizers will be served.

When: Wednesday , February 29th 7-9pm

Where: The Turtle Club 936 Park Ave. Hoboken NJ 07030

Website: http://www.hobokenturtleclub.com/

Price: $25 Members and for  $35 Non-Members

If you attend the event as as non member and decide you want to join within 48hrs of the event (which everyone should!) you will be refunded the $10 difference in ticket price.

Please register by using the link below. Registration will close on the 27th so get in there early! Click Here To Register
