For the past five years, the Third Way Center benefited from a major wine-tasting/fundraiser wine-tasting fundraiser in LoDo. But the event, scheduled for tonight, "was cancelled rather abruptly a week ago by the host/venue, leaving Third Way Center high and dry," according to Tami Lack, Third Way's director of administration and development.
Enter McCormick's and the Oxford Hotel, which, in less than a week, recreated Tasting for a Cause, a benefit for Third Way, a forty-year treatment program for mentally ill and potentially homeless youth, that will run from 6 to 9 p.m. tonight in the Oxford Hotel Ballroom, 1659 Wazee Street. Tickets will be available at the door only, for $150 each.
Oh, and the venue that cancelled? Lack declines to name it, preferring to focus on the future, but according to the invite I received a month ago, it was slated for the Morton's at 1710 Wynkoop Street.
