Our Annual Vino Classico wine and beer tasting is coming up fast!
A lot of grapes and a few hops are among the winning ingredients for “Vino Classico with a Beer Chaser,” a popular wine and beer tasting and silent auction fund-raiser that will be held from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12, at the Eden Prairie Community Center, 16700 Valley View Road in Eden Prairie.
The Eden Prairie (A.M.) Rotary Club organizes the annual event to raise money for its many community, national and international programs, including STRIVE student mentoring; service projects in Peru, Africa, India and Honduras; the well-known Golden Eagle Award; and an annual recognition banquet for Eden Prairie High School behind-the-scenes achievers called Above & Beyond Awards.
Vino Classico, which annually draws more than 400 guests, will feature more than 100 varieties of wine and at least a dozen types of beer. Attendees will be able to order specially priced bottles of the beverages through Eden Prairie Liquor Stores. In addition, they can enjoy food samples from local restaurants and stores. If you are new to Eden Prairie, you will not want to miss this opportunity to meet your new neighbors and share a toast to our great city!
The event features a silent auction, with dozens of items donated by area businesses – including event tickets and sports memorabilia – and a “Wall of Wine” raffle.
Mark your calendar now! You can purchase tickets at any of our Eden Prairie Liquor Stores for $35 in advance or $45 at the door.
