The spotlight at Paper Mill Playhouse Saturday night was not on the stage but rather on the glass–a wine-tasting fundraiser to benefit the theater's education and outreach programs.
Former Olympic and world champion skater Okasana Baiul and ex-New Jersey Gov. Brendan Byrne were among the guests who sampled wines from around the world and enjoyed a gourmet food-tasting.
The event was supported by Kings Fine Wines in Short Hills, Restaurant MC and Cafe Monet.
Also among the guests was Sean Larkin, a Short Hills resident who owns Larkin Winery, whose cabernet franc recently received favorable notices from the Wine Spectator's Robert Parker.
The event was organized by Sharon Sandbach, president of the Paper Mill Guild, and Esther Harper, director of development for Paper Mill Playhouse.
