Hike & BYO Wine Benefit Raffle for Hurricane Sandy Victims

This hike, party and wine raffle will benefit the Red Cross designated to Hurricane Sandy victims.

 

The Hike: We will hike the Wetmore Trail for about 4 miles at a moderate and enjoyable pace for all while enjoying the November weather. Limited to the first 100 people.

 

The Party: After the hike - prepare for a fun evening of wine, music, and story telling at the home of host, Andy Hawes, in Cuyahoga Falls from 5p to 9p. at 272 Ravenshollow Dr. Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio 44224.  (no pets & no mud in the house, please!)

The $10.00 entrance fee will include an automatic raffle ticket for a holiday basket of wine and can be paid at the hike or party. Make checks payable to the American Red Cross.

If you choose to skip the hike, your donation can be accepted at the party which goes from 5p to 9p, so feel free to come out regardless.

Entertainment starts at 5p to include the FHS Jazz combo, a special performance by our own Miki Saito, and other musical guests!

Please bring your own wine/beverage and an appetizer to share event. A second Wine basket will be raffled off as an additional option for a $10.00 ticket.  Having a full basket of  wine to go with the coming holidays would be a winner in any home; along with knowing how you benefit a worthy cause while enjoying yourself. The party start is officially at 5 pm and to wind down at 9 pm - then an after party will be announced!!  Please come to enjoy the company of hiker friends and kick off the holiday season helping someone else in a tough situation. Our goal is to raise $[masked]

    Thank you letters are posted on Facebook Meetup and on my FB page with dolar amounts contributed. Checks were waited to be cleared by some who requested as well as direct donations before money was dropped off on Friday November 30th. It then took two weeks for a letter to be written.
