The American Cancer Society in Brooklyn has devised an ingenious idea for mixing pleasure with fundraising. On Sunday Nov. 12, the organization has organized the first "North Fork Wine Tour," a day of seminars, sipping and snacking at three of Long Island’s most respected vineyards. Proceeds from the event’s ticket sales will go to providing vital transportation services to this borough’s patients while they undergo chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

"This event will expose Brooklynites to some of the prized vineyards of North Fork Long Island while making a difference in the lives of their neighbors. We’re anticipating a fabulous day," says the American Cancer Society’s Director of Health Systems and Collaborations Heather Anderson.

Two jitneys will leave the Brooklyn Academy of Music [30 Lafayette Ave. between Ashland Place and St. Felix Street in Fort Greene, (718) 636-4100] at 8:30 am and transport participants to the glorious wine country.

The event gets off to an exciting start at Bedell Cellars/Corey Creek Vineyards for a tour and tasting of eight premium wines. The next stop is Martha Clara Vineyards for a seminar, wine tasting and four-course gourmet lunch. The day will conclude with more vino and a cheese-tasting at Palmer Vineyards, a winery on the area’s East End.

Then it’s a good, long snooze for booze-addled participants as they are transported back to BAM.

Tickets to the ACS "North Fork Wine Tour" are $125 in advance for singles; $450 for four tickets; and $1000 for 10 tickets. To order, log onto www.nycharities.org (listings on events calendar). For more information, contact Heather Anderson at (718) 237-7851, ext. 9132.
