FLINTON – Jessica Swasing, fundraising chairperson, has announced that this year’s Glendale Education Foundation’s “Winter WineFest II” fundraising event is set for two sessions on Saturday, Feb. 8, from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. and from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m., at the Coalport Fire Hall.
The five wineries who will be there for participants to sample and purchase are: Glendale Valley Winery, Woody Lodge Winery, Bee Kind Winery, Starr Hill Winery and Uncle D’s Sassy Glass Winery.
In addition, there will be five other vendors: Cookies by Mary Ann Farrell, Tastefully Simple, B&B Country Cheeses, Scentsy and Paparazzi Jewelry.
Event participants will be given a complementary glass with the foundation logo (courtesy of GHS alumni) to sample the many wine varietals, door prize winners will be awarded every 20 minutes and there will be food for purchase.
In addition, an attractive lot of baskets are available via a chance auction, lucrative 50-50 raffles, as well as tickets towards a donated wood sculpture from “Rannel’s Rustics.”
Patrons must be 21 years of age to enter and are encouraged to purchase tickets ahead of time for $15 (*$20 at the door) at either Leyo’s Supermarket and Josie’s Restaurant in Coalport, “Bungo’s Tires” in Madera and “Pennywrens” in Flinton. They are also available from any foundation board member.
As tickets are limited per session, organizers suggest that it’s important to decide which session you’d prefer to attend early.
All proceeds assist the Glendale Education Foundation’s mission: to generate and manage resources to enhance learning opportunities for students and staff of Glendale School District.
Updated information will be available on the Web site, www.GSDFoundation.org, or the foundation’s Facebook page.
