Wine Women and Winter is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Lakeland Pantry. Always sold out, this beautiful holiday gala provides a wonderful venue where community women come together in comradery to raise funds to help feed more than 2,600 families served by the pantry. Forty percent of this total is children.
A wide selection of red and white wines will be served including some organic wines. All are personally selected by the committee members working together with John Aiken of SaveMore Marketplace. Wines will be available the night of the event for ordering at special pricing. A selection of specialty and holiday coffees from Little Creek Coffee in Arbor Vitae will be offered by Little Creek Coffee staff at the event, according to owner Cherie Abendroth.
Attendees will enjoy an evening of sampling specially prepared, delicious appetizers. SaveMore Marketplace’s Pam Siech, manager of the store’s delicatessen/bakery and special order gourmet foods, and her staff will serve a large selection of hot and cold gourmet hors d’oeuvres. Completing the evening’s menu will be gourmet desserts baked and served by Wild Berry Market’s Cora Rudisill, owner of Eye Candy Cakes.
Holiday and Christmas music will fill the air while attendees enjoy the evening. The local, acclaimed, singing group Trillium is back, by popular demand, to perform at WWW. Plus, look for the very popular team of “WWW men in black and white,” who will be on hand to check coats, sell raffle ticket sales, and serve wine.
Always highly anticipated, the night also features the raffling of 70-75 beautifully decorated, assembled “gift baskets” of merchandise and merchandise certificates donated by over a hundred local merchants.
