FORT COLLINS - Wine Fest, which has raised more than $500,000 for people with disabilities since its start 30 years ago, takes place Friday.

Featuring more than 500 wines from around the world, the wine tasting and food event will celebrate three decades at the Hilton Fort Collins. Proceeds from the event will fund Disabled Resource Services, which helps nearly 6,000 disabled people live independently in Larimer and Jackson counties.

Attendees can participate in an electronic silent auction and wine raffle. Among the items up for bid is a Napa Valley, Calif., vacation, including accommodations as well as tours and tastings at wineries.

Wine Fest is made possible by a number of sponsors so that the maximum amount of funding can benefit people with disabilities. For more information, visit WineFestFC.org or call 970-407-7060.
