Love Wine?  GOOD wine, we mean!

We will be pouring dozens and dozens of amazing wine from the American Fine Wine Competition. Join us for a fun Sunday afternoon of awesome wine, delicious wine-friendly hors d’eouvres, music, raffle, the Cork Pull- and all indoors so it will be nice and cool.

Join us as we help the Ft. Lauderdale Woman’s Club redo the oldest building in Ft. Lauderdale- their building!  They need a new roof and we are going to help them get it.

Their mission is to engage women as volunteers who want to make a recognizable difference in addressing civic, educational, cultural and humanitarian needs in our community and beyond. Members consist of women of various ages, backgrounds, talents and interests.  They value “unity in diversity” and welcome you to join them!
