O&G Industries’ Safety Team is helping to plan the Brass City Wine and Food Fest to benefit Habitat for Humanity of Greater Waterbury.  The event will take place on October 11th from 6-9pm at the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury.

“The event is going to feature 9 old world wines paired with gourmet foods from the regions of Italy, France and Spain.  We’re also going to have live jazz music in the museum gallery along with some fantastic silent auction prizes” stated O&G Safety Director and Event Chairman Mike Ferry.  “I really wanted our safety team to take on a project that would have an impact in the community.  The idea was really to design an event we would all like to attend ourselves – and hope that our guests at the event will love it too.”

O&G’s Safety Team has worked closely with the Habitat for Humanity Board of Directors in planning, marketing and fundraising for the event.  “So far we have raised $10,000 in sponsorships toward our $20,000 goal” stated Habitat for Humanity of Greater Waterbury Executive Director Keith Weston.  “I’m really proud of the work the O&G team has done in gathering construction industry support and planning this event.  It’s going to be a special night.”

The Brass City Wine and Food Fest will be held on October 11th from 6pm-9pm at the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury.  Tickets, sponsorships and donations can be made online via brasscitywinefest.com.
