Wine Tasting and Silent Auction, 2015

On May 16, 2015, we held CHI’s major fundraiser of the year. With a truly gifted wine connoisseur in Paul and nearly 70 items including those ranging in value from $500 to $10, there was something for everyone. The surprise bid of the evening was George’s Snickerdoodle cookies. Two dozen cookies topped out at $90.00! A bidding war was on!
The theme for the wine tasting was Old World, New World. Paul paired the wines accordingly and described the general differences. He had made up a chart so each of us could rate the wines according to preference. Not sure which type of wine won the most votes, but the over all selection was excellent. Hard to judge!

Thanks to all parishioners who donated items, helped with the setup and clean up and made this event such a successful and fun occasion!
