From the HIV/AIDS Resource Center press release:
"This year, the Wine Cellar event will also be a way to commemorate World AIDS Day.
"Given the significance of this day, it is a perfect time to bring supporters together to reflect on 30 years of AIDS — to celebrate our successes and to re-energize ourselves for the work that is left to be done to fight the spread of HIV in our community," says Jimena Loveluck, President/CEO of HARC.
Donated by local celebrities, wine collectors and bon vivants including radio personalities, elected officials and other local community leaders, the bottles are autographed and their personal story of the wine is included. The Wine Cellar raffle features a grand prize of over fifty bottles of wine an instant wine cellar to one individual out of this outstanding collection!
Attendees will taste wines selected by Everyday Wines, enjoy delicious food prepared by Bona Sera Supper Club and DINE\aut\ Catering, as well as the decadent chocolate fountain from Schakolad Chocolate Factory. Entertainment will include live jazz performed by the Jesse Kramer Trio and co-host Linda Yohn from WEMU Radio.
Event tickets are $50 per person in advance or $60 at the door and can be purchased through HARC by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, contacting Chris McMullen at 734-572-9355, or online at www.hivaidsresource.org.
