The Fairfield Foundation for Education will host a fund-raising wine tasting and silent auction from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, at the Fairfield Museum and History Center, 370 Beach Road.

The event, titled "Winning Wines for the Holiday Table," will include music performed by singer-songwriter Kristen Graves, a wine tasting and hors d'oeuvres.

The nonprofit foundation provides grants to help teachers enrich the curriculum in the Fairfield Public schools, according to the foundation. Projects funded by the foundation include an iPad project for autistic students, a salmon breeding environmental project as part of the science curriculum and financial help with gardens planted at all of Fairfield's public elementary, middle and high schools.

The cost of the wine tasting and auction is $35 for a single ticket and $60 per couple. Tickets are available at the door, or by mailing a check to Fairfield Foundation for Education, P.O. Box 320561, Fairfield, CT 06825.
