A TOAST TO WC CHARITIES
at Cheers to Wine
On Wednesday, July 26, 2017, a group of LWRWC members, husbands and friends gathered at the local wine shop and wine bar, Cheers to Wine, located at 8225 Natures Way, Lakewood Ranch, in the San Marco Plaza, for a wine tasting party. The event was a mini fundraiser to benefit the LWRWC adopted charities, HOPE Family Services, SMART (Sarasota Manatee Association for Riding Therapy), and SOLVE Maternity Homes.
Everyone enjoyed sampling four delicious wines, tasting the delicious shareable appetizers, and relaxing in the company of friends.
The shop has a friendly “bar” atmosphere, helpful staff and excellent selection of wines and great craft beers. It is a great place to come and try something new and to learn something about old favorites.
Socializing is easy because there are several places to sit and enjoy wine and treats, including high top tables, bar stools at the elegant bar, and comfortable love seats and chairs.
LWRWC and friends toasted our hosts, friends and the wonderful, charitable work of HOPE, SMART and SOLVE. Attendees also purchased raffle tickets for a chance to win a variety of adorable themed raffle baskets (100% of the proceeds were designated for the charities.)
LWRWC thanks Event Chair, Paula Slicker and Program Chair, Trish Newman for coordinating this well attended, fun-filled event!
The LWRWC would also like to thank Cheers to Wine owners, Robin & Carmen Spagnola and Cheers to Wine Manager, Ruth Jimmink for their generous offer to donate a Wine Party as a Silent Auction item for our Lakewood Ranch Women’s Holiday Jazz Supper Club Cabaret Charity Fundraiser. The event is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2017, 6:00 to 10:00 PM in the Ballroom at the Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club.
