Black & White with a Splash of Red Wine Event on November 3 to Benefit NWO Red Cross

The American Red Cross of Northwest Ohio is hosting an unique wine tasting
event, Black & White with a Splash of Red presented by the Anderson's
Charitable Foundation 5:00 to 9:00 PM Sunday, November 3. The event supports the Red Cross mission and services in our local community.
In Northwest Ohio, Red Cross volunteers are responding to a devastating house fire every day.  Red Cross provides emergency shelter, food and clothing to families that have just lost everything they own.  By supporting the event, you are helping your friends and neighbors in a time of greatest need following an emergency.  All proceeds from this event will stay in Northwest Ohio to continue our local services and programs.
Walt and Lois Churchill and Dick and Fran Anderson are the honorary
chairpersons for this unique wine tasting event featuring wines with "Old
World Flavors" from France, Spain and Italy.  Wine Trends will lead the
evening with a special presentation by Enrico Pozzesi, owner of Fattoria Di
Rodano vineyard in Italy.  Jim Hodulik, owner of Stella's restaurant will be
discussing the food pairings. 
During the cocktail hour there will be appetizers followed by a five course meal including dessert.  Each course will be paired with a specific wine that will be presented to explain the unique qualities matched for that specific dish.
The event will be hosted at Black Diamond Nursery and Greenhouse in
Perrysburg on November 3 from 5:00 to 9:00 PM.  Other activities include a
wine bottle raffle, and silent and live auctions  David Lester, a finger
style guitarist, will be playing background music for everyone's enjoyment.
Tickets are $100/person and are available online here. Only 150 tickets are available and a sellout crowd is expected, so don’t delay.
