Claret Wine Bar Holding Reception Tonight to Raise Funds For Suicide Prevention


Oct. 15, 2019. By Shane O’Brien 

Claret Wine Bar is holding its second annual Wine and Cheese Reception Wednesday in aid of a suicide prevention charity.

The reception kicks off at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 16 at the wine bar located at 46-02 Skillman Ave. and will run until 11 p.m.

Tickets for the event cost $25 and ticket holders are entitled to two glasses of wine and finger food. The wine reception will also feature live music and raffles.

All of the proceeds from the evening will be going to Solace House, a suicide prevention center which operates two centers in New York, including one in Long Island City.

Solace House was set up in 2017 and it provides confidential, therapeutic support for those who are experiencing suicidal thoughts, depression, anxiety, bereavement by suicide and also for those who engage in self-harming behaviors.

Every year, Solace House organizes a sunrise walk which begins in darkness and ends at dawn. The event is attended by thousands of people and symbolizes people suffering with depression emerging from darkness into light.
