Greenwich Food and Wine Festival Whets Appetites

Tickets are on sale now for the second annual Greenwich Food and Wine Festival, slated for Oct. 4 through 6. This three day feast fest is a celebration of almost Dionysian proportions. But all this food and fun happens for a good and very charitable reason. "The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp brought an enormous amount of support to the table,” says Unger of the festival’s fundraising beneficiary, founded by the late Paul Newman. “And the work they do [with kids] is just incredible. Working with them on this festival has been truly a pleasure.”

Tesi'ah, 15, was in cheerleading practice when her cell phone started ringing repeatedly.

The two had met at the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Ashford, where they attended summer camp for children with sickle cell anemia. The girls, who each have the inherited blood disorder that affects primarily African-Americans, later discovered they lived a short distance from one another, and their friendship grew.
