A great mix of different kinds of food, fine wines, exuberant "gourmet guys" (and their sous chefs), and an excellent cause: Mix them all together in a beautiful venue and you get "Grapes and Gourmet Guys," the popular fundraiser now in its ninth year, sponsored by The GriefCare Place, headquartered in Stow.

The "Men in Black," male members of The GriefCare Place Board of Trustees, will serve as hosts/guides/assistants at the event, scheduled for Sept. 13 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the St. George Family Center, 3204 Ridgewood Road, in Akron.
