MARC Community Resources’ tasting event is our premier annual fundraiser. Attracting an average of 300 attendees, we’ve raised over $200,000 over the past several years. Our guests enjoy tastings from an assortment of wines, beer, and spirits. This year’s theme is the Kentucky Derby “Gettin’ Down & Derby for disABILITIES” and includes music, silent auction, wine pull, raffle, a derby attire contest and more.
