wh-4p-olThe 15th Annual Okanogan Omak Rotary Club Wine & Cheese Tasting Event will be held November 9, 2013 starting at 6:00 p.m.  The event will be held at the Okanogan County Fair Grounds Agriplex.  There will be tasting of several wines, beers, coffee, cider and hard cider.  A table full of cheeses, fruit and heavy hors d'oeuvres will be there throughout the evening for you to pare your wines with.  Throughout the evening there will be three silent auctions, a dessert auction and a live auction.  We will also have a wine store for you to purchase wine by the bottle or by the case.  This is the Club's main fund raising project and with the generosity of those in attendance, we generally raise a significant amount of money that is funneled back in to our communities.  We also sell balloons for Polio.  Last year we sent over $2,000 to Rotary International's Polio program.  Please come and join us.  This event has become one of the communities premier events drawing up to 500 people.  We would love to have you join us.
