Wine and Wishes: A Virtual Wine Tasting Fundraiser
ABOUT THE EVENT
We might not be able to celebrate under the same roof, but that doesn't mean we still can't have a night of fun together – from the comfort of our own homes! After COVID forced us to cancel our signature fundraiser in April, Wine and Wishes will bring together old and new friends alike, to raise much-needed funding in support of the children at the Community Child Guidance Clinic. Donations and sponsorships collected from Wine and Wishes will be used to support the renovation, improvement, and expansion of our outdoor spaces, so that more children can access services and the benefits of therapeutic time outdoors.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Join us on November 12th at 7:00pm and experience the magic that happens when a community comes together for an important cause. Hear some of CCGC's stories of hope and learn about how to support CCGC’s important goals that will continue to provide impactful and innovative mental health services to the children we serve. Throughout the evening, guests will enjoy a live virtual wine tasting, with a specially curated assortment by Jacob Studenroth from The Wise Old Dog, and revel in the delicious treats from local chefs at the DORO Restaurant Group (shout outs to both who are making sure that all of your purchases directly benefit CCGC!). Participants will also be able to enjoy the musical stylings of local musicians while bidding in our online auctions, and have chances to win prizes and giveaways during the mental health trivia games. Don’t miss this entertaining evening and the chance to support this important cause in our community.
