On Saturday, November 10, New North Church, 1 Lincoln Street, Hingham, will host a wine and cheese tasting event as a fundraiser to support the ongoing restoration of the ballroom and parlor in the rear wing of the historic meeting house.
The tasting will be held in the church’s first-floor Ruth Curry Parlor from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. and will feature wines provided by Kappy’s Liquors in Norwell. Paired with the wine will be a variety of cheeses from the Fresh Market at the Shipyard and Bloomy Rind in Hingham Square.
Tickets are $15. Advance tickets are available at La Petite Maison and Whitney Gordon Jewelers in Hingham Square. They may also be purchased at the door.
The evening will also include a spectacular auction item donated by Kappy’s: an in-home wine tasting for 20 people, valued at $750. “The winner of this unique gift will discover they have all kinds of new friends,” said Rev. Steven Aucella. “At the same time, they can take satisfaction in knowing they helped support one of Hingham’s iconic buildings.”
