The New Milford Spirit Shoppe and NeJaime's Wine & Spirits will host a wine tasting April 17 from 6 to 9 p.m. in New Milford.

The event, to be held at the Arion Singing Society at 411 Danbury Road (Route 7 South), will benefit New Milford Hospital's breast care fund.

More than 100 wines and a selection of beers and spirits will be available, and hors d'oeuvres will be served.

John NeJaime's businesses have hosted the wine tastings to benefit the breast care fund at New Milford Hospital each spring since 2006.

More than $60,000 has been raised for the fund, which provides community education, education supplies and lymph edema care, among other services, to the greater New Milford population, according to NeJaime.

"It's said that education and awareness are the key to prevention," NeJaime said. "Anything New Milford Spirit Shoppe and NeJaime's Wine & Spirits can do to help combat this epidemic, we are happy to do."

Tickets at $25 in advance are available at New Milford Spirit Shoppe, 16 Prospect Hill Road, and NeJaime's Wine & Spirits, 164 Danbury Road.

Tickets will be $30 at the door.
