Fall is quickly approaching and that means we are gearing up for our annual winetasting fundraiser. The event will be held on Friday, October 27th at Rumours Wine Bar. Dana & Jerry, the owners, are looking forward to hosting us again. This is our biggest fundraiser and raises the funds we need to support our scholarships. Everyone’s help and support is needed for this event to be a success. Flyers and sponsor forms will be available soon. We ask that you all help find sponsors and encourage ticket sales. Keep posted as much more information will be coming soon.
