PLEASE INVITE YOUR MALE FRIENDS.  We will cut off ticket sales to ladies once we reach a maximum and then will require a male ticket purchase to release a ticket so we have a "balanced" crowd.

Crowd: Young/Mid Professionals (20's through 40's/early 50's)

When: Saturday November 12, 2011 at 6:00 PM

Time: 6:00 pm-7:30 pm Wine Party (please be prompt as we will be serving each wine and appetizer paired) followed by dinner on the Mezzanine for members who stay for dinner.

Dress: Party Dress/Semi-Formal This is your chance to dress up in early holiday sparkle, satin, etc. the little black dress and guys in suit and tie or jacket.

Please Note: NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR/NO WALK UPS!....sorry but we will have to turn away anyone who doesn't have an advance ticket as wine and food has been allotted based on the ticketed attendees and we do not handle money at the door. We expect over 120 attendees (we had 130 at last year's event) and it's difficult to check folks in and handle money. Please see the Denver Wine Meetup for the refund policy.

We are partnering with a global organization called Global Action, The Dream Project, who along with ministry teaches women in the Ukraine desperately needed skills for their future (to keep them out of human trafficking) along with an orphanage that has a wonderful summer youth camp.  We are partnering so we can provide an opportunity for you to learn about the organization along with helping our group obtain some partner discounts/donations of additional wines for the event.

 

Please note that our group will not have another event until January 2012 as there are already too many holiday parties and folks skiing the first 2 weeks of December. We have a special event with an incredible dinner deal after the wine party so sign up now!
