HANDS horizontal-temp logo
HSW Spirits,
the wine vendor of Main Street Fort Pierce’s Friday Fest, will donate one dollar for each glass of wine sold at the June 5 Friday Fest to HANDS of St. Lucie County. HANDS volunteers will be at Friday Fest selling the wine and providing information about Hands of St. Lucie County.

HANDS is a free clinic that provides high quality health and dental care to uninsured county adults and free dental screening for children. Without additional funding, the clinic may close by the end of August 2015.

Horace Webb, president of HSW Spirits said,  “The money raised from wine sales and from additional donations at June’s Friday Fest will be used as matching funds for a $10,000 Challenge Grant issued by Dr. Shamsher Singh, a dermatologist who practices in Fort Pierce. If HANDS can raise $10,000 before the end of June Dr. Singh will match that money dollar for dollar.”

HANDS Clinic serves the medical needs of more than 65,000 people from St. Lucie County.

HSW Spirits will introduce a line of premium wines that are new to Friday Fest, Webb said. Sosabe Tabanka Red is a table wine blended from 5 California red grape varietals. Its companion white wine is Sosabe Sauvignon Blanc with grapes sourced from Lake County in California’s Napa Valley. Each wine will be available for $4.00 per glass.
The wines offered by HSW Spirits are available at local businesses in Fort Pierce including Roy’s Liquors, Uncle Carlos, the Pelican Yacht Club and at the Bottle Shock and West End Grill in St. Lucie West.
