An event hosted by the Naramata Bench Wineries Association earlier this week raised more than $50,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of B.C. and Yukon.
Hundreds of people attended ReWined, the NBWA’s annual spring wine tasting event, on Tuesday night in Victoria.
Nineteen Naramata wineries provided products for the tasting event. Proceeds are donated to charities, and the event gave to Make-A-Wish for the first time.
“We were able to enjoy a lovely evening together and raise awareness and funds for granting wishes for kids who really need a boost in their spirits,” Make-A-Wish B.C. and Yukon CEO Ross Hetherington said in a news release.
The event included a silent auction and raffle, and food came from various restaurants from Vancouver Island.
