Wine tasting event to benefit B & G Club of Rush County

Six years ago a group of individuals began looking for a different community event to support the Rush County Boys & Girls Club. The group decided to use a wine tasting event as a means to generate much needed funding for the club.

According to B & G Club board members Cindy Sickbert and Kip Burkett, the inaugural event was well received and has since grown.

“This will be the seventh annual wine tasting event for the benefit of the Boys & Girls Club of Rush County,” Burkett said.

This year, the event will be held beginning at 6 p.m., Nov. 2 at the 201 Building located on Main Street.

Various wines from J & J Winery (Richmond) will be served and a full evening of entertainment will be provided. Lori Hoeing Catering will provide heavy hors d’oeuvres and music will be provided by the Hoosier Buddy Band.

A number of local businesses provided items for the auction portion of the evening and Rusty Harmeyer will serve as auctioneer.

“We have a number of really great items to be auctioned: pairs of tickets to see the Indianapolis Colts, Indiana Pacers, IU and Purdue basketball; a three day two night stay at Hidden Mountain Resort in Tennessee; Polish Pottery from the Rushville Pharmacy; and his and hers prescription sun glasses from Sickbert and associates Optometrist - to name a few,” Burkett said.

A total of 120 tickets for the event are available for $50 each and can be purchased at the Boys & Girls Club, Sickbert Family Eye Care, Elizabeth’s Keepsakes and the Rushville Pharmacy.

“This will be the seventh year for this event and it keeps getting better each and every year. Don’t wait to get your tickets. All proceeds are staying right here in Rush County and going for a good cause,” Burkett said.

For additional information on the event, Chet Walker CPO of the Boys & Girls Club of Rush County can be contacted at 765-932-2765 or 765- 561-.1718.
