Wine tasting at SBC benefits MYL

Milford Youth Lacrosse will hold its 4th annual MYL Wine Tasting Event from 6 to 9 p.m. on Monday, June 24 at SBC Restaurant, 33 New Haven Ave. (downtown Milford).

The donation is $25 per ticket, $40 for two available at the door.

Some auction items already on the table: Stadium Box at Citi Field for New York Mets Game (17 guests), foursome to Yale Golf Course, and  some great raffle items.

MYL is still raising funds to complete its monetary commitment to the Milford High Schools Lacrosse Programs.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the James T. Malaney Education Fund in honor of the Foran High Salutatorian Class of 2004, who was lost after a two-year battle with cancer.

Malaney went to the University of Connecticut, where he received his Bachelors of Science in the School of Pharmacy in 2008.

He was to receive his Doctorate in Pharmacology in May 2010, which his family proudly received.

In addition to his intellectual achievements, Malaney gave back to his community through work with the Veterans at the VA Hospital and children at the pediatric psychiatry unit at Yale Hospital.

An avid outdoorsmen, he loved fishing with his father, any kind of physical fitness, especially his days of running cross country track at Foran High and kayaking with his friends.
