Wilbur’s Total Beverage Supports Pathways through A Vintage Affair

The one thing that makes our We R Foco hearts happier than anything else? Seeing one member supporting another. Wilbur’s Total Beverage has been giving back to the nonprofits in the community in the form of a classy night out for nearly 20 years. A Vintage Affair features an evening of more than 200 wine and beer varieties from around the world, unlimited gourmet appetizers, a silent auction, games and more. This year, the event benefits Pathways, one of the We R Foco nonprofits.


Wilbur’s Total Beverage also contributes 99 bottles of wine and 99 bottles of beer that guests will have the opportunity to win by purchasing tickets at the event. Pathways is a nonprofit agency that provides exceptional hospice care in the last months of life, complete palliative care for those with long-term serious illness, and community-wide grief support.


If you love to support our local nonprofits and enjoy a fun night out of wine and beer tasting, join us at A Vintage Affair! This event will be held at the Colorado State University Lory Student Center Grand Ballroom on Friday, September 20 from 6:30-9 p.m. Tickets are available now at $80 per person and can be purchased at Wilbur’s Total Beverage or pathways-care.org/ava. Guests must be 21 years of age or older to attend.


“This classic wine and beer tasting event has become an annual tradition in northern Colorado,” said Mat Dinsmore, owner of Wilbur’s Total Beverage. “We are thrilled to connect our many vendors with community members for an enjoyable night of supporting Pathways’ incredible mission.”


The funds raised during A Vintage Affair go directly towards Pathways to help offset the costs of general operations and activities such as creative grief classes, the Children’s Healing Garden, or to provide scholarships for children attending the Kids, Horses, and Healing retreat. Losing a loved one is difficult no matter what age you are, but children grieve differently. Pathways has extensive options for children experiencing grief and loss. Additionally, Pathways provides palliative and hospice care for those experiencing a life-limiting illness. Because Pathways is a nonprofit and will care for anyone, regardless of ability to pay, events such as A Vintage Affair are crucial to keep these programs running.
