On Sept. 26, Make-A-Wish Foundation of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana will have its annual Wines for Wishes fundraiser event.
“This will be our 15th year holding this event,” said Callie Cannon of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. “It’s a great event that has helped us raise much needed funds to grant wishes to local children with life-threatening medical conditions.
“The last year we held this event was in 2012. We took a hiatus in 2013.”
The fundraiser will take place at a new location this year, Table Forty4 in Downtown Toledo.
“Table Forty4 has graciously donated their upstairs space to host the tasting event. The event is also being hosted by Treece Investment Advisory Corp., as well as the Make-A-Wish Young Professionals Advisory Council of Northwest Ohio. We are hoping to raise $8,000, which is the average cost of a wish,” Cannon said.
Wines from four regions will be available for tasting, provided by Heidelberg Distributing. Table Forty4 will provide hors d’oeuvres and Whitty Music will entertain guests all evening, she said.
Wines for Wishes is set for 7-10 p.m. Sept. 26. Tickets are $55 in advance and can be ordered by contacting Cannon at
