Fundraiser supports local charities with wine tasting and live auction

A sure cure to the January doldrums is a fabulous night of gourmet food and fine wines. Better yet, all proceeds go to charity.

Area residents are invited to the sixth annual Vine and Dine: a Toast to Flower Mound Rotary Charities on Friday, Jan. 27, 2012 at 7 p.m. at Celebrations, 2380 Justin Rd., Highland Village. 

Those who attend will enjoy several courses of exquisite dining, each specially matched with complementary wines. Prior to dinner, guests will enjoy a “Wine Stroll” to sample wines from various local vintners as well as those from Italian and German regions.  Keynote speaker Mark Davis, live music and a live auction will complete the evening’s affair.

This premier event is an evening filled with amazing people, wine, food and fun.

During the wine stroll guests will sample many fine wines from around the world and then enjoy several courses of exquisite dining catered by Salerno’s Restaurant.

From appetizer to dessert, each course will be paired with a specially matched glass of wine to complement each service.

Keynote speaker Mark Davis is host of the most popular local talk show in Dallas/Fort Worth, and he took the Metroplex by storm in March 1994 when he arrived at WBAP. Years of ratings dominance have followed in morning slot.

Winner of three “Achievement in Radio” (AIR) awards in Washington, he has been honored in his WBAP career with awards for commentary from the Texas Associated Press and a Katie award from the Dallas Press Club.

All proceeds raised benefit the charities and civic service projects of the Flower Mound Rotary and Rotary International. Charities that have benefited in the past include Pediplace, Children’s Advocacy Center of Denton County, Lewisville ISD Education Foundation and many more.  The more money that is raised at the event translates into more charities being helped.
