As brand development manager for Point of the Bluff Vineyards, Tambi Schweizer is a familiar face to many in the Finger Lakes wine industry.
Those colleagues came out to support her last month, when the Steuben County winery on the west side of Keuka Lake hosted a concert that raised money for Hope Town, one of the communities in the Bahamas hardest hit by Hurricane Dorian in August. Schweizer’s family has a home there that was severely damaged.
Fifty percent of all ticket and wine sales from the concert, featuring the popular 1970-80s band Ambrosia, went for hurricane relief. Proceeds from a silent auction, featuring donations from more than 30 local businesses and organizations, brought in more money for the cause.
