Wine in the Pines


Standing ovation for Josh Blue performance at the 30th Annual Wine in the Pines.

Wine in the Pines – Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who joined us in beautiful Keystone Colorado for the 30th annual Wine in the Pines benefiting the Kelly Smith Employment Center at Ability Connection Colorado.  Mike and Margaret Smith, owners of Dillon Ridge Liquors in Summit County, founded this event to provide opportunities and assistance for people like their daughter Kelly, who has cerebral palsy.

Held on October 19th, the Venetian theme event featured gourmet food, over 500 wines, extraordinary desserts and musical entertainment by Ability Connection Colorado’s own, Tina Navarro.. At the end of the night,  well known comedian, Josh Blue, performed a hilarious routine, earning him a standing ovation by the full house of event attendees.
