ROTARY WINE-TASTING FUNDRAISER:
Our Hialeah-Miami Springs Rotary Club has been busy supporting our local community during this pandemic, but for us to keep doing so we need to raise additional funds. At our monthly Board meeting last Monday night, we allocated club funds to scholarships for low-income college-bound high school seniors ($6,000), a handicapped ramp for a local family ($1,000), and meals for needy families through Bethany Church ($1,000).
As you may know, our club counts on working events like the River Cities Festival and our annual Golf and Poker tournaments to raise funds…allof which were canceled this year thanks to Covid. So in order to help fund these and other great community projects, we are having a wine-tasting fundraiser this coming Saturday (11/14). Below are details:
At 5pm on November 14th, the head of global exports at Share A Splash will present a virtual wine tasting of 3 of their wines: a chardonnay, a rosé, and a cabernet sauvignon. Your purchase of a $50 ticket gets you all 3 bottles (375ml size) and a live tasting on Zoom. To be clear, the $50 is not per person – you can have as many people as you like to join in the tasting with you. The $50 ticket simply gets you the 3 bottles to share as you wish.
The wines were shipped to the country club and may be picked up there after purchase. The link to the virtual Zoom tasting is printed on the ticket; the tasting will also be recorded so if you are not able to watch it live, you may do so at a later date.
It was pointed out that the Women’s Club will be having their fundraising Spaghetti Dinner at the same time; for those of you doing the tasting at home, we recommend ordering food from there to enjoy with the wine.
We are selling 60 tickets at $50/each; currently there are 21 remaining. Please reach out to me if you would like to purchase one (or more!) and pass this along to any friends who may be interested.
Thank you all for your support of this fundraiser that will empower our club to do more good works!
