Raising a Toast to the Future of Blowing Rock Hospital

June 29, 2012. For 35 years the caring women of Blowing Rock have donated time and talent to raise money for our 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.

Join them July 12, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the beautiful home of Kim and Steve Kincaid. Don your dressy denim and raise a glass to the 2012 theme “Blazing a Trail in Style and Healthcare.” All proceeds will benefit the new medical facility being developed in the Blowing Rock community.

This event is presented with the help of following wine distributing companies: Ms. Natali Meetze of Fine Wine Trading Company, Mr. Dylan Tatum of Grandfather Winery in Banner Elk and Ms. 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.

In addition, this event will highlight some of the best restaurants in the High Country who have graciously donated the hors d’oeuvres for Wine and Women. We will feature delicious 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. Please contact Megan Ellis at 828-262-9564 or mellis@apprhs.org to purchase tickets.
