Seats are limited so get yours today! Tickets are available through Jeanne or look for our fundraiser ticket sellers set up at the front office on Monday, Wednesday & Friday next week.
  2. WHAT IN THE WORLD IS A WINE WALL? We collect 55 bottles of wine. Participants buy tickets for a chance to “open up a door” on the wall, behind which they will find anywhere from 1 to 10 bottles of wine to take home! This is a fun and spirited part of the evening and always a crowd favourite! You can place your wine donation in the box at the front office… we still need 35 bottles!
