Connecting the Causes~
A Wine Tasting to Benefit Geist Cancer Charities
Scheduled for September 30th at the Indianapolis Yacht Club. This event benefits three Geist Cancer Charities: Creating Hope, Indy SurviveOars Dragon Boat Team and Team Luke. Last year's Inaugural Event raised over $20,000 for the charities!
Elite Beverage will provide unique wines for the evening, giving attendees an opportunity to sample over 60 different wines at a price range of $9-$90 per bottle. The evening will also include gourmet heavy appetizers provided by MBP Catering, Live Music by Bongo Boy as well as exciting Live & Silent Auctions.
Capacity for the event is limited to 250 people. Organizers expect this 2nd Annual event to sell-out as quickly as the Inaugural Event last year!
“The number of art programs and materials provided free to cancer patients was significantly increased as a result of the funds received from the Inaugural Vines For Life event. Approximately two hundred cancer patients of all ages received free Hope Kits. Thank you Vines For Life supporters.” - John Gianfagna, Creating Hope
“Thanks to the dollars raised at the inaugural Vines for Life fundraiser, the Indy SurviveOars were able to continue their mission of providing breast cancer survivors a “floating support group”. These monies allowed the team members to update their equipment (paddles, personal floatation devices) and enter races in Evansville, IN; Knoxville, TN; Windsor Canada and Louisville, KY this summer.
Our dragon boat project is unique as it is helping those living daily with breast cancer and those who are survivors living with the fear “Will this cancer come back.” Indy SurviveOars are providing these women a place where they can escape both physically and mentally. We are so very grateful to the supporters of Vines for Life for their generous donation and continued support”. - Kathy Harrison, Indy SurviveOars
"Vines for Life 2010 was a celebration for Team Luke, for many reasons. It was the coming together of new and old friends, supporting Team Luke and two other cancer charities, and stepping out to make an impact for those that have to face cancer and all it's implications. It was a night of celebration and friendship, good wine, and supporting even better causes". - Vicky Andritsch, Team Luke
