Wining and Dining with You Assist

March 25, 2013

Our wine tasting fundraiser was a huge success! With a turnout of just over 60 people, it’s safe to say that we surpassed our wildest expectations. The evening went off without a hitch thanks to the incredible efforts of the Curious Grape’s own event coordinator, Megan. While I was struggling to figure out how to work the credit card reader at the entrance, Megan and the rest of the staff made sure everyone was taken care of and that the event ran smoothly.

Of course a big thank you is in order to Boxwood Winery, Breaux Vineyards, and Rappahannock Cellars for providing the balanced, oftentimes subtle, and, on occasion, fruit forward entertainment for the evening. I also want to say thank you to Bruce for coordinating the logistics with all the wineries.

Most importantly, thank you to everyone who attended, everyone who donated, and everyone who purchased some great wine to take home with them. Your generosity will have a direct impact on the lives of school children in Colombo, Sri Lanka and that is something definitely worth proposing a toast to.

We’ll be sure to update you as soon as we have the final total of money raised for the evening. In the meantime, check out some of the event photos below. There would probably be more had our photographer not gotten distracted at the tasting tables. I can’t really blame her because it was such a fun event.
