Mark Your Calendars for October 23 – 4, 2015
Thank you for making Wine in the Pines 2014 (Cirque du Vino) such a smashing success!
At Cirque du Vino on October 18, 2014, guests enjoyed Keystone’s finest food, over 500 wines, and a dessert and chocolate feast that was as artful as it was delicious! Aerialists performed throughout the evening on the floor of the Conference Center and high above. The breathtaking and imaginative finale seemed effortless thanks to Imagination Circus Arts performers.
The proceeds from this annual mountain wine event in Keystone benefit the Kelly Smith Employment Center at Ability Connection Colorado.
Thanks to this Summit County tradition, which will celebrate 32 years in 2015, and the sponsors, guests, chefs, winemakers, wine purveyors, and volunteers, hundreds of people with disabilities find and maintain employment that suits their choice and preference within their communities. What better way to celebrate National Disability Employment Awareness Month (#NDEAM)!
This is a deeply personal event for founders Mike and Margaret Smith who consider WIP “a great time celebrated among friends, and an even better way to “pay it forward” to people looking for their place in the workforce, just like our daughter Kelly.” Born with cerebral palsy, Kelly’s drive and determination to succeed are truly inspirational.
Thank you for providing pathways to employment for a motivated and underemployed workforce.
