Guests are encouraged to dress casually and comfortably for this relaxing gathering at the 57-acre farm winery nestled in the rolling hills overlooking Cazenovia Lake. The afternoon will feature a silent auction and raffle items, hors d'oeuvres and refreshments catered by Owera’s Brick Oven Café, and wine, hard cider and beer tastings from local cideries and breweries.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the VNA Foundation of Central New York, which supports and promotes the provision of pediatric home health care services in the Central New York region.

The event will be the first held under VNA Homecare’s new name and brand, Nascentia Health, which is set to launch on September 15.

“Held just weeks after the introduction of our new name, our Raise a Glass event offers the perfect opportunity to reinforce the reasoning behind the rebranding and reiterate our continued commitment to providing exceptional care,” said President and CEO Kate Rolf. “We are excited to take this next step as a healthcare system and look forward to celebrating with our guests.”
