Summary of project This was a great fundraising idea! I contacted several restaurants around town and found one that would give me a good per person price for a wine tasting event. The event feature 3 wines and 3 cheeses and a sommelier that gave a presentation. We sold tickets at lunch to students, faculty, and staff. There was also a raffle for some wine-associated prizes. Overall everyone had a great time and learned about some wines!
