There are so many moving pieces when it comes to putting together a large fundraiser, and our Valentine’s For the Love of Wine event is no exception. It truly is a labor of love – for our staff, our committees, our volunteers, our sponsors and our supporters, and we are so grateful for everyone who chose to join us at this year’s event!
This year, we held our event at the Chateau Lacombe ballroom, and 350 guests joined us on Feb. 19 for an evening of fine wine, delicious food and music. It was a truly magical evening, and we’re so glad we could share it with our guests, whose generosity helped raise over $40,000 for Kids Kottage!
This year, we also hosted a VIP Wine and Chocolate Reception before the main event, a chance for 50 lucky guests to join a team of sommeliers and chocolate couture artists for a unique and exclusive tasting experience. Thank you to everyone who joined us!
