Fellow Wine Lovers,
On Saturday, March 9th at 6:30pm we will be having a very special event, our second annual fundraiser! Not only will we be meeting to drink wine and enjoy friends, but we will also be raising money for a great cause, Chicago’s Ride for Aids put on by Test Positive Awareness Network (TPAN). All money raised will benefit TEAM TPAN!
This month we will enjoy South American Wines! Please join me for an evening of wine, catered food, a DJ, a raffle, a silent auction and more! Although the event is catered, please feel free to bring a snack and don’t forget to bring a bottle of Wine!
Although the event we have planned is coming together nicely, we need your help. Currently we are looking for:
- Silent auction items. Some suggestions include: gift cards, hotel rooms, airline tickets, artwork, restaurant gift certificates, anything wine, etc.
- Volunteers to work the event.
- A DJ who would be willing to donate their time.
- A Caterer who would be willing to cater the event at a discounted price.
If you have any items you would like to donate, would like to volunteer, or know a DJ/Caterer please contact me at [masked] or [masked]-7935.
This event will be held in a beautiful space at the Second Unitarian Church of Chicago (656 W. Barry Ave, Chicago). This church can accommodate more than half our group (300 people). The Church is accessible by train or car. Limited street parking is available. Coming by train? Get off at the Red/Brown/Purple Belmont stop and walk east to Clark. Take a right onto Clark and a left onto Barry. The entrance to the church is on the side of the building.
Over the last two years this group has grown into a great group of almost 550 wine lovers. I Like Red Wine is now at a size where we can truly make a difference in our community; therefore, we are trying something new by having two charitable fundraisers per year.
