WLC Fundraiser & Champagne Tasting Event
Friday, July 27, 2012 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM (EDT)
Gainesville, United States
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Join the United Way of North Central Florida's Women's Leadership Council (WLC) for an evening of sipping and tasting and raising money to help local children in need.
You'll sample 5 champagnes and/or sparkling wines, enjoy homemade appetizers, socialize with other WLC members and contribute to the WLC Elementary Essentials program, providing basic supplies to children in need through our local schools. The WLC created Elementary Essentials in 2011 when they learned of local school children coming to school without proper underclothing and socks; in some cases, even wearing plastic grocery sacks as underwear. Elementary Essentials has already donated $1,500 to three local schools to help provide uniforms, under clothes, socks and winter clothing for our area children.
All proceeds and monies collected at the reception will go into the Elementary Essentials Fund.
All WLC members are invited to bring a guest who may be interested in hearing more about the WLC and donating to United Way.
The event is hosted by Jane Adams, Vice-President of UF University Relations, and will be held in her private home.
Register early and save $10 off the cost! Price of event includes a sampling of champagne/sparkling wine and appetizers. This is an RSVP-only event, and all guests must be pre-registered to attend.
