SRF NAMED OFFICIAL CHARITY OF WINE & MUSIC EXPERIENCE EVEN

-- Tom Cosentino

CREAM RIDGE, NJ -- August 10, 2016 -- This Labor Day weekend take a break from work by sipping wine, listening to great music and enjoying the company of family and friends when the Garden State Wine Growers Association (GSWGA) hosts their Wine & Music Experience at the Horse Park of NJ on Saturday and Sunday, Sept 3-4 from noon to 5 pm (rain date Monday). In doing so you will be helping raise funds for the work of the Standardbred Retirement Foundation the official charity of the Wine & Music Experience. A percentage of each ticket sold will benefit the mission of the organization. The Foundation is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization created to care for, rehabilitate, and secure lifetime adoption of non-competitive racehorses to ensure their proper care with follow-up, and combine the needs of youth at risk with these horses in therapeutic equine programs to benefit both. The Foundation will have an information booth at the event where festivalgoers can learn more of the organization’s mission and works.

“With our Wine & Music Experience scheduled at the Horse Park of NJ, we were looking for an equine charity to partner with and our Board felt the Standardbred Retirement Foundation would be the ideal partner,” said Tom Cosentino, executive director of the Garden State Wine Growers Association. “We are very pleased to be able to showcase their great work and raise funds for assisting with their mission.”

After years of holding its Labor Day weekend event at Allaire State Park, the GSWGA has moved to the beautiful and spacious Horse Park of NJ in Allentown on Route 524 (exit 11 on I95) in order to provide customers with an expanded music and wine experience paired with award-winning New Jersey wines. The event will feature two bandstands allowing for non-stop musical entertainment that will be headlined Saturday on the Main Stage by the famed Roomful of Blues Band, the American blues and swing revival band with a recording career spanning over 40 years. Long Gone Daddies will perform on the Local Stage and Burning Bridget Cleary will open on the Main Stage. Sunday's musical entertainment will be headlined by The Slambovian Circus of Dreams on the Main Stage as well as Rogues on the Run performing on the Local Stage and Hot Jazz Jumpers opening on the Main Stage.
