Five Wonderful Appliances to be Auctioned at our
Nov. 13 Wine-Tasting Event.
Vineyard Bus Tour Also Available!
Wine-Tasting Party Auction Goodies
for our Scholarship Program!
On Nov. 13, your club will once again feature its traditional wine-tasting event at Fernwood Botanical Gardens. But this year the event has been expanded into three exciting parts: Part 1 is a vineyard bus tour ($20) set to leave Fernwood at 2:30 p.m. sharp followed by the gathering for Part 2 ($20 wine-tasting) and Part 3 (auction) to get started at 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 13.
You may participate in the bus trip without attending the wine-tasting event. You also do not have to be a member of our club or a Purdue alum to attend and take part. And if you don’t want wine, we will have soda and water available.
The auction will feature five beautiful, leading edge KitchenAid products ($1,010 MSRP) generously donated to the club by Whirlpool Corp. (home of many Purdue alumni) for the benefit of our club’s Purdue University scholarship program. All 5 items will be individually available during the auction, and, yes, you can bid whether you attend this event or not!
