Second Annual Picton Rotary Wine Festival and Auction
Prince Edward County, the newest non-Designated Viticulture Area in Ontario,
will play host to hundreds of culinary and wine enthusiasts April 24,
2004, at the historic Crystal Palace when the Picton Rotary Club launches
its Second Annual Rotary Club Wine Festival Dinner and Auction. The first
annual Rotary Wine Festival was successful in 2003 in providing a donation
in excess of $12,000 to the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital from
the proceeds of that event. This year's proceeds will be directed to the
Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation and community charities
supported by the Picton Rotary Club.
The spectacular evening event will offer attendees the opportunity to
be some of the first people to experience Prince Edward County's new releases
and to experience the culinary creations of Prince Edward County's best
chefs all under one roof.
Featured is a live auction offering both winter and summer vacation destinations,
original art, winemaker's dinners and a wide variety of auction items.
Each live auction item is valued in excess of $1000. A silent auction
will also be part of the evening extravaganza.
Special getaway accomodation packages have been arranged for out-of-town
attendees for this event.
