Enjoy an evening sampling over 150 premium wines from Spain, California and South America along with food from The Columbia Café while helping find a cure for Adolescent Young Adult (AYA) sarcoma at the sixth annual “Andrea’s Sip for Life” Wine Tasting on Friday, March 9th, 2012 at the Tampa Bay History Center on the Riverwalk.

The event is from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., with a $100 donation per person.   This event is sponsored by the Columbia Restaurant and the Gonzmart Family Foundation.  For reservations or more information, visit www.columbiarestaurant.com or call (813) 248-3000, ext. 24.

Every dollar donated and raised will benefit the Adolescent Young Adult (AYA) initiative for sarcoma research at H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute.

This unique event provides the setting to sample great boutique wines accompanied by a variety of food from The Columbia Café, and the opportunity to purchase the wines to take home. The net proceeds of the purchases helps fund cancer research – drinking wine never tasted so good.

“Andrea’s Sip for Life” was created by Columbia Restaurant President Richard Gonzmart as a way to combine his love of wine with his long-time desire to find a cure for cancer.  He was especially touched by the story of Andrea Dicks Hartley, a young mother and Moffitt patient who lost her battle to sarcoma cancer in August 2006 at the age of 30. She left behind her then two and a half year old daughter.  This event was created and named in Andrea’s honor. 

“I created ‘Andrea’s Sip for Life’ which is part of the Gonzmart Family Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, to support my ongoing pledge to help raise funds to fight cancer and to help those fighting it,” Gonzmart said.  “Cancer has affected so many of my loved ones and friends.”
