Looking for ways to liven up your dinner parties? Then don't miss this Friday's event at Macy's, where you can learn more about wine pairings for dinner parties while raising money for the Mid-Ohio FoodBank.

Master Sommelier and James Beard Award-winner Andrea Robinson, also part of the Macy's Culinary Council, will share wine-pairing tips and demonstrate how to make some of her favorite desserts. Robinson has authored five books on wine and food, including Everyday Dining with Wine, and she also hosted the Fine Living Network's Simply Wine and Pairings with Andrea.

The event is part of the Come Together campaign, a collaboration between Macy's and Feeding America that urges customers to host dinners in their homes and ask guests to donate to Feeding Hunger in lieu of a hostess gift. Macy's is matching customer donations dollar for dollar.

Tickets are $15 and all proceeds benefit the Mid-Ohio FoodBank. RSVP by calling 614-342-2308.
