Reds, Whites & Desserts--A Vintage Tradition
Now in its 17th year, the tradition continues as the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce presents the ever-popular Reds, Whites & Desserts on Friday, May 23 from 7 to 10 p.m. The fundraiser, which will once again be held at the Bridgewater Banquet & Conference Center on Sawmill Parkway, features wine tasting, hors d'oeuvres, desserts for sampling and auction, and a host of silent auction packages. Every year about 300 attendees come together for an evening of social and business connections. Funds raised go toward business leadership and student scholarships.
Wine tasting lovers can choose from approximately 40 wines from Chamber member wine
retailers and restaurants, including Cameron's American Bistro, Chateau Wine & Spirits, House Wine, J. Liu Restaurant & Bar, Kroger Fresh Fare, La Chatelaine, Ruth's Chris Steak House, Sharon Square Wine Shop and Signature Wines.
Silent auction packages will include hundreds of items donated by local retailers—all grouped according to whimsical themes. Some of the most popular items that attract bidders each year include a Lake Erie fishing excursion, blacktop paving and holiday lighting services, custom jewelry from Worthington Jewelers, weekend getaways to a lakefront home in Michigan and a cabin in Hocking Hills, golf packages, and gift certificates for numerous products and services.
