Lakes Area Rotary's 5th Annual Beer and Wine Tasting netted $16010 in our biggest event to date.  As a result $8,005.44 will go directly to Scarlet's Smile, this year's beneficiary, with a similar sum going to support other Lakes Area Rotary charities such as Shelterbox, Lakes Area Youth Assistance, Invisible Dad lunches, Leader Dogs and Hospitality House.
An additional $4010.48 will go directly to Scarlet's Smile from attendees who made designated donations for Scarlet's Smile.  This brings the total benefit to Scarlet's Smile from this event to $12,015.92.  Lakes Area Rotary is proud to make this contribution to this worthy cause.  In the future all children in our service area will benefit from this all-inclusive playground.
Thank you to all the food vendors who graciously donated food to the event, to sponsors and those who donated items to the silent & drop box auctions.  A special thank you to Farmer John's Greenhouse for providing the venue and to Uncle Buck's Party Rental for tables, chairs, etc. Without your help and dedication to our community this event would not be possible.
