In 2018, it was announced that moving forward, the Taste for NOW would be renamed in honor of Nick Haines as a tribute to Nick’s many contributions to the community and his passion for fellowship. As owners of Friendly Spirits in Danielson, Nick, his wife Judy, and his son Rusty have been longtime supporters of NOW and the organization is proud to honor Nick with this annual event. Over two dozen beers and wine will be provided by Friendly Spirits, with 10% of all their sales during the night will also be generously donated back to NOW.
