The seventh annual wine tasting event at Cabrini College was held in the Mansion, Saturday, Nov. 9.

The attendants were required to pay at least a $45 admission fee, but could also pay $60 and be named as a patron or $100 and be noted as a benefactor to the scholarship. The winner of the scholarship this year was Muriel Jarrett. Jarrett is a junior in the graduate program. She also raises her daughter and commutes using the train. She works full-time at the Paoli Hospital. Her major is social work.

The tasting had about 70 guests altogether between alumni and faculty. They tasted the wine, blind folded, and tried to decipher if the wine was white or red and whether the wine was from the east or west coast. There was four wines in all, two white and two red.

The tasting was held for the benefit of the Adult Continuing Education Scholarship Fund. The scholarship is an investment of $25,000 dollars or more, that gains interest and the recipient gets the interest of that $25,000 dollars. The scholarship was made to keep the Adult Learners, or non-traditional students that are 23 years and older at Cabrini who are interested and connected to the school. The founders of the program are Judy Bradley and Steve Highsmith. They are on the Continuing Education Board, which is comprised completely of non-traditional graduates.
