Maryville will host its 3rd Annual Wine and Garden Tasting Tour at its Des Plaines campus at 1150 N. River Road on Saturday, July 16 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. It will feature French wines specially selected by Patricia Cotner Ahern , a local wine expert and general manager of PURE Wine Company.

For $50, you’ll enjoy multiple French wine flights, appetizers, a visit to the Jen School Garden, and raffles.

“We are very excited to be hosting this event again this year,” said Megan Biasco, Maryville’s Director of Development. “We are bringing a nice touch this time by offering exquisite French wines.”

Biasco said people have been asking about the event since the start of the year.

“People really enjoyed coming to the event and this year we decided to do a time slot but extended it by 30 minutes. It will be a great event which will benefit our school Jen.”

Jen School works with young people who are experiencing academic, emotional, behavioral or intellectual difficulties. It is the only school in the country that provides vocational training for students aged 10 to 21 with special learning needs.

Jen School is a nine-time recipient of the National Association of Special Education Teachers (NASET) School of Excellence Award.
