Organization sets fundraiser

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Tony Harper
Although the planning process of the fundraiser began some time ago, Brazil Main Street, Inc., is ready to move forward.

On Thursday, during its monthly meeting, Vice President Tony Harper discussed "An Evening of Wine and Roses," set for Thursday, June 9, from 6-9 p.m.

The event will take place at the Renaissance Reception and Conference Center, 101 W. National Ave., Brazil.

Tickets for the event will cost $15 and all proceeds will go to benefit the American Heart Association.

"This gives us two months to sell tickets," Harper said.

Harper added he had 250 tickets available, which members of Brazil Main Street will sell individually.

Harper said he had approached officials with House of Spirits, 319 E. Jackson St., Brazil, in regard to setting up wine tables.

In addition, he said Bee Creek Brewery will be on hand for the event and Creative Catering will take part as well.

Harper said he hopes to have six to eight tables set up for wine and food.

In addition, gift baskets will be available at the event and the organization is still in the process of looking for donations from local businesses for the baskets.

The group also discussed the possibility of conducting a silent auction during the event.

"I'd like to get as much backing that we can get," Harper said. "The more the merrier."

Brazil Main Street, Inc., meets regularly on the first Thursday of each month at the Brazil Public Library.

Its next scheduled meeting is Thursday, May 5, at 6 p.m.

How about Brown County Winery in Nashville, Indiana, Carousel Winery in Bedford, Butler and Oliver in Bloomington. Those would be great additions to your wine tasting tables. Can't wait for this event!
