HOLYOKE — The Junior League of Greater Springfield’s (JLGS) third annual Beer and Wine Tasting fund-raising event will take place this Sunday, June 11, from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Holyoke Canoe Club. Proceeds from the event will support the Junior League’s scholarship fund. Every year, the Junior League awards a scholarship to a graduating high-school female who has exhibited exemplary leadership and community service.
This year, the event will include a silent auction, live music by Berkshire Hill Music Academy, and hors d’oeuvres by Log Rolling Catering.

“There are many young women who demonstrate strong leadership skills and dedication to volunteerism,” said Sharon Baldwin, president of the Junior League of Greater Springfield. “We are proud to recognize one of them with a scholarship, and this event ensures that we can continue to support young female leaders for years to come.”
The event is open to the public and sponsored by Commonwealth Packaging Corp. of Chicopee, O’Donald Law Offices, and Moriarty & Wilson, P.C. Tickets can be purchased through the Junior League of Greater Springfield’s website (www.jlgs.org) for $30.
“This event will help highlight the vitally important work the Junior League of Greater Springfield provides to the local community as well as reward a graduating high-school female for her hard work and service,” Baldwin said.
