Residents can take part in a community event to support local families in need. People Helping People is selling tickets to a Feb. 26 wine tasting fundraiser hosted by Café Escadrille, 26 Cambridge St. The event, scheduled for 2-5 p.m. will include appetizers, raffles, and auctions, in addition to the wine tasting.
