Tri Kappa hosts Wine Fest

Wine tasting, appetizers, silent auction available at fundraising event

ANDERSON -- Tri Kappa of Anderson is wining and dining people this weekend.

The philanthropic sorority is hosting Winter Wine Fest from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday at Toscana Event Centre, 1314 Broadway. Guests will sample wine and food and can place bids in a silent auction.

Kaylee Vida, chairperson of the committee planning the wine tasting, said two red wines, two white wines and one dessert wine will be available to sample. Tickets cost $25 per person.

Caterer Larry Peck is preparing five dishes for the fundraising event. To plan for the event, he sampled wine with members of Tri Kappa and then narrowed the list to pair with appetizers.

“I think a good rule of thumb is whites with seafood and lighter menus, and then reds and heavier things,” he said.

Some of the items up for auction at the event go along with the sorority’s focus on arts and culture.

Vida said tickets to the Anderson Symphony Orchestra, the Anderson Young Ballet Theatre’s upcoming production of “Cinderella” and various other events around town will be up for bid. Many of the tickets will be paired with restaurant deals. A timeshare for a week at a condo in Orlando, Fla., is also up for grabs.

The sorority tries to think of fun events throughout the year to raise money, and has even done a zumbathon for the spring fundraiser before, Vida said. This year someone on the committee came up with a wine tasting and the idea took off.

Money from ticket sales and the auction will go toward scholarships to three graduating seniors this year. Some of the funds will also go toward this year’s spotlight charities, the Madison County Humane Society and Sister 2 Sister Ministries.

Tri Kappa president Laura Beeler said the sorority has done everything from selling flowers to Easter eggs, and sorority members seem to be excited about the new idea.
