It was a big night for the Litchfield Montessori School on Friday as it was the beneficiary of a highly-successful wine and beer tasting at the Litchfield Inn's Tavern off the Green.
More than 150 supporters of the school filled the inn's ballroom to taste beer and wine provided by several distributors and to bid on a large collection of silent auction items.
The sixth annual event was being held at Tavern off the Green for the third straight year. School director Cara Johnson praised John Roller, owner of Tavern off the Green, for his accommodations and the community for its strong support. Nutmeg Fine Wines and Spirits partnered with the school in organizing the tasting.
Proceeds from the evening will be used to help the school cover operational costs.
Attendees included, from left, Marci Vincitorio of Litchfield, Larry Komisar of Goshen and Donna Casali of Litchfield.
