AIM Services hosted Vin Le Soir, a celebration of wines from all around the world, at Longfellows Restaurant on Oct. 19.

Approximately 250 attendees were treated to enticing raffles, such as a Lake Placid getaway and plenty of bottles of wine, provided by Specialty Wines and More in Albany. Many of the wines were featured throughout the event, along with Longfellows’ signature hors d’ oeuvres.

Artist and fashion designer Debbie Brooks from New York City created a special handbag and bracelet emblazoned with the words “Power of Potential” exclusively for the event. AIM Services is dedicated to supporting the “power of potential” in people of diverse abilities.

Connor, guest speaker and an AIM employee, shared his experience having Down syndrome and the challenges of being accepted in society. He made a video that can be viewed on the AIM Services Facebook page that makes a very simple but powerful statement: “It starts with you.”

Guest speaker Benita Zahn of News Channel 13 shared her experience with people who have disabilities: “You’re showing them that you care, you respect them and you want to make sure they have the same dignity that everyone has. That’s all they want in this world.”
