Tour de Vines

The Columbia Patuxent Rotary Club held its signature fundraiser last week at the Wilde Lake Interfaith Center.  Welcome, Tour de Vines.

We hosted a wine event, to include wine pairings with foods generously donated by local restaurants to include Uno’s, Tino’s, Outback, T-Bonz, Edible Arrangements, Tersiguel’s, Smokin’ Hot, Curry and Kabob, Eggspectations, Ranazul, Seasons 52, and Hudson Coastal. That was all complimented with desserts, silent auctions, music, a speakeasy, and as with every Rotary event, wonderful fellowship.

Our club members transformed the space into a warm, fun space, with lovely decorations on the tables.

Our purpose with this fundraiser is to raise money that we then distribute to local non-profits through a grant process.  In past years, we have donated to Columbia Festival of the Arts, Community Action Council, Gilchrist Hospice, Grassroots, HC DrugFree, Hope Works, Howard Conservancy, Neighbor Ride, Compassionate Friends, and Winter Growth, to name a few.

Due to the generosity of our many sponsors, including Offit Kurman, ticket prices were a mere $60 per person for all of the evening’s offerings.

We expect this to be our signature fundraising event going forward, so look for our save the date to come in the next few months, so you can mark your calendars and plan to attend this marvelous event.
