An Overview of Our First Festival in 2019
The Rotary Club of Peachland organized the first wine tasting event showcasing wines from West Kelowna, Peachland and Summerland on Saturday 27th April, 2019. The Wine event was called “Peachland – Sip and Savour Wine Festival” and took place in the Peachland Community Centre, 4450 6th Street, Peachalnd, from 6:00-9:00 pm. Proceeds raised went toward a number of local and regional projects that directly assist children, youth and adults in need. The Rotary Club of Peachland is a completely volunteer driven organization with no administrative costs whatsoever so every dollar raised goes toward helping others. Thanks so much to our wineries, sponsors, local restaurants and attendees (approximately 180) who contributed to the success of our event. The feedback was overwhelming positive.
Winner of the 2019 View Contest
Three cheers the winners were : Caroline Alger, Carmine Confalone and Tara Walman Sedgley who were excited to attend our Sip & Savour event. They each won two tickets from the View’s Sip & Savour contest.
Our MC for the 2019 evening, fellow Rotarian Rod, brought some “class” to the event – just had to share his photo. Kudos to our fellow Rotarians who pitched in to help in the set-up, take-down and running of the evening event. Also to the Wine Festival Committee – Chair Madeleine (serving some of the delicious food provided by the restaurants), Peggy (sampling some wine), Jane, Wolfgang and Rod for all their hard work planning this successful event. As well, Midge and Ted look after a few attendees participating in the Blind Wine Tasting below. On to next year!
