‘Wine and Women: A Tasting’ to raise funds for new facility

For 35 years the women of Blowing Rock have donated time and talent to raise money for the community hospital. 

Once again, the past and present chairwomen of the annual Blowing Rock Hospital Benefit and Luncheon will host a fundraiser, “Wine and Women: A Tasting.”

The event will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 12, at the  home of Kim and Steve Kincaid. “Don your dressy denim, and we’ll raise a glass to the 2012 theme ‘Blazing a Trail in Style and Healthcare,’” officials with the event said.

All proceeds will benefit the new medical facility being developed in the Blowing Rock community.

“We are pleased to present this event with the help of following wine distributing companies: Natali Meetze of Fine Wine Trading Company, Dylan Tatum of Grandfather Winery in Banner Elk and Wendy Dunn of Mutual Distributing Company. Each company has agreed to generously donate and represent their wonderful wine with a tasting sure to please any pallet,” the officials said.

In addition, the event will highlight some of the best restaurants in the High Country which have donated the hors d’oeuvres for Wine and Women. There will be dishes from Bistro Roca, Mary Kelly Glidewell’s, Foggy Rock, Crippen’s Country Inn, The Table at Crestwood and The Best Cellar.

A ticket to the tasting is $50, of which 100 percent is tax deductible.
