GOOD NEWS!

 

The 2019 French Wine Tasting & Food Pairing

earned $10 289.71 after expenses of $11 486.37.

 
  • Net raffle earnings of $2361.08 from the sale of 350 raffle tickets must be spent on local projects, as decreed by the rules of the Alcohol & Gaming Commission of Ontario, as they relate to raffles.
  • The remaining $7928.63, of which $6235 was earned through the silent and live auctions may be used to do good both locally and internationally, as the club sees fit.
  • 128 guests (16 tables of 8) paid $85 per person that covered the cost of wine, food and entertainment as projected.
  • 8 sponsorships of $250 + a donation of $300, paid the remaining expenses and provided profit for the event.
 
The 2019 Planning Committee recommends that we hold
a 2020 “Wine Tasting & Food Pairing” fundraiser at West Haven,
celebrating the wines and foods of PORTUGAL
on Saturday, April 18, 2020
with an anticipated goal of $10 000 profit.
 
 
 
Suggestions to maintain, improve or freshen the 2020 event include:
  1. Reduce the number of tickets to 120 (15 tables of 8).
  2. Reduce the number of courses from 7 to 6 including dessert.
  3. Keep the ticket price at $85 per person.
  4. Set up a reserve list at the June 6th and 20th,  2019 breakfast meetings, allowing members to indicate how many tickets they will need. Doug will use as a guide to distribute tickets, when they are available the beginning of February.
