Wine Survivor COVID style
On February 13, 2021, we celebrated our 4th Wine Survivor event. The Special Events Committee, together with 5 hosts, put together terrific Covid safe house parties. We gathered in groups of up to 10, Rotarians and invited guests, arriving at 7:00, with munchies and drinks. The host collected the $20.00 and wine for the draw, if it had not already been turned in.  At 8:30, Bill hosted the first Zoom elimination draw, losing 14 of the 27 participants. At 9:00, we gathered again for the final round. Many thanks to Chris and his helpers for coordinating the draw. Congratulations to Garth Gordon on his win.
A good time was had by all, friendship, good food and drinks.

It has grown into an international movement and is a signature program of the Foundation.
