As the holidays wind down and we’re all feeling just a bit more full of blessings, food and fun, our New Year springs into action and we’re reminded of the promises that we’ve made ourselves during the previous year. Most of us promise to make personal advancements at home and at work, but all of us have an underlined promise to make our homes and communities better places for our children and grandchildren to live. Of course, it can’t hurt to enjoy yourself while you’re thinking of ways to accomplish these tasks. If you’re in the mood for an evening of entertainment and a chance to work on that final goal, consider attending the Kiwanis Club of Steilacoom during their 5th annual Winter Wine Fest.
Each year, the Kiwanians from DuPont, Steilacoom and Anderson Island join together for a night of wine tasting, silent and live auctions, entertainment and socialization, all with the same intention…making our communities a safer place for our youth and creating an environment that will lead to more productive lives for our children. The annual Winter Wine Fest is the primary means of funding for Kiwanis projects throughout the year.
The Steilacoom Club was established in 1993 to meet the needs of their communities. They are involved in various community service projects and provide funding for scholarships, gifts for the Child Study and Treatment Program at Western State, school programs such as BUG (Bring Up Grades), Terrific Kids, Key Club and Builders Club. This group of volunteers is here to support you. Now, here’s your chance to support them in their endeavors in 2011.
Most of us hope to contribute to our community in a positive manner, but not all of us can offer the time to make these programs a success. Wine Fest is a perfect option to learn about what projects are taking place in the community, enjoy a night of fun and most importantly, give back.
Wine Fest will be held at the McGavick Center in Lakewood on January 28th from 6-9p.m. Tickets sell for $40 each. Kiwanis Club of Steilacoom is a 501(c)3/4 and all donations are tax deductible. For information about tickets and sponsorship, contact Ron Lucas at 253-732-8895.
