Thursday's "Winds, Waves & Wines" event, the annual Aquarium of Niagara celebration of the grape, was a success, with scores of people in attendance at the Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls. Patrons learned more about the Aquarium of Niagara as they sampled hors d'oeuvres, sipped wine from local merchants, tried their hand at a silent auction and listened to live music.
M&T Bank served as the grand sponsor of "Winds, Waves & Wines." In recognition, the Aquarium of Niagara presented a cut-glass piece of art to Stephen P. Czarnecki, right, the bank's vice president of business and professional banking. Pictured with Czarnecki is M&T Bank's Bill Castellino, a member of the Aquarium of Niagara board.
