Wine & Cheese Social Scheduled for Friday, September 24, in Bowling Green

Bookmark and Share  The Bowling Green Parks and Recreation Foundation’s 15th Annual Wine & Cheese Social will take place 5:00 to 8:00 PM on Friday, September 24, at the Simpson Building, 1291 Conneaut Ave., in Bowling Green. Tickets are $30 each and are available at the door.

The three leading civic groups in Bowling Green (Exchange Club, Kiwanis and Rotary) are teaming up with the Bowling Green Parks & Recreation Foundation to help make this year’s Wine and Cheese Social and Auction a success.

The wine selections will have an international theme with wines from five different continents. Wine has been generously donated by Bowling Green Beverage. Wine expert (and BG Beverage president) Norm Heineman will be on hand to answer your wine questions. Not only will there be outstanding wine aplenty, but there will also be an assortment of microbrew and craft beers. Of course delicious food and non-alcoholic beverages will also be available.

The event features a silent and live auction with some great auction items. The live auction will be conducted by television newscaster Jerry Anderson of WTOL, Channel 11. It is certain to be a fun-filled, exciting evening.

Wines for the evening are as follows:


1. 06 Warwick Estate Pinotage (South Africa)
2. 09 Schilds Grenache M.S. (Australia)
3. 08 Finca Flichman Malbec Reserva (Argentina)
4. 06 Midnight Cellars Malbec (Paso Robles, CA)
5. 08 Pelee Sweet Merlot (Canada)
6. Smith Woodhouse 10 Year Tawny Port (Portugal)

4. 07 Tangent Ecclestone (Edna Valley, CA)
5. 09 Chateau Julia Chardonnay (Greece)

The beneficiary of the event is the Bowling Green Parks & Recreation Foundation Save the Woods campaign. The foundation purchased a parcel of land adjacent to the Wintergarden/St. John's Nature Preserve to prevent it from being turned into a housing subdivision. This fundraiser is helping to retire the debt.
