Hi it's Craig Matthews getting ready for “TOUR DE VINE 2011”. It's a culinary & wine tasting experience to benefit Computers For Children.  I know how important my computer is to me for work and fun, and kids theses days need computers not just for learning, but to prepare them for the high tech world we live in.

So what is Computers for Children and this event all about?  It's a benefit to raise funds to help sponsor technology training programs for at-risk youth & provide computers to schools & agencies in need!

Join me this Thursday and see the new STATLER CITY, meet area "Celebrity Pourers" and support a great cause! Some of those who will be stopping by include; Russ Salvatore, Terry Pegula, Jack Quinn, local TV personalities from channel 2,4 and 7 (and me). Plus enjoy live music with Steve Balesteri singing classic big band tunes along with great food from the area’s finest restaurants, spectacular wines and distinct beverages from around the region and the world!

You can also take part in Buffalo’s most unique sought after silent auction items. From awesome getaways to the cool technology items including flat screen TV’s, digital handhelds, tablets and more! There is even a raffle to win a 50” flat screen television, a Samsung Galaxy Tablet, or wine refrigerator!

Hope to see you this Thursday, November 3rd from 5:00-9:00 pm at The Statler City, Delaware Avenue at Niagara Square in downtown Buffalo.
