The Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare (FSLH) Foundation’s annual Wine Tasting and Auction benefitting St. Luke’s Home was held Saturday, October 5, 2013, at the Sadaquada Golf Club in Whitesboro. The event raised more than $58,000 for St. Luke’s Home.

St. Luke’s Home is a 202-bed facility with a 40-bed subacute rehabilitation unit. Proceeds from the Wine Tasting and Auction will be used to purchase a computer software program that will help engage the residents in computer activities.

“The strong support we received from the community for this year’s auction was incredible,” said Bonnie Woods, chairwoman of the FSLH Foundation’s Wine Tasting and Auction Committee. “We deeply appreciate the support for St. Luke’s Home and thank everyone who participated in this enjoyable event.”

The live auction featured a selection of exclusive wines generously donated by Constellation Brands, Inc. of Rochester, New York, including a rare set of three Opus One vintages from across the decades.

The Wine Tasting and Auction was sponsored by CONMED Corporation, Faxton St. Luke’s Volunteer Association, First Source Federal Credit Union, Fust Charles Chambers LLP, Hummel’s Office Plus and the Hummel Family, Mohawk Hospital Equipment, Inc. and Sodexo.
