Opera House “Tour the World” Wine Tasting Details Announced

Sept 4th, 2012 – The Dakota Prairie Regional Center for the Arts in New Rockford has released plans for its second annual Wine Tasting and Silent Auction fundraiser, set for Saturday, September 29th. The evening will feature an open-air wine tasting under a grand tent outdoors, dinner, live music, and a silent and live auction.

The full ticket price of $30 will include a wide variety of hors d’oeuvres and samples of thirteen wines from around the world. Guests will receive a “passport” to fill out as they taste wines from the different regions, and live musical performances and expert wine tips will be presented throughout the evening. A cash bar will also be open and serving wine by the glass, beer, and limited mixed and specialty drinks.

The tasting’s wine list includes selections from each of three regions: the Americas (with wines from California, the upper west coast, North Dakota, Chile, and Argentina), Europe (with wines from France, Germany, Italy, and Spain), and Down Under (with wines from South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan). Servers will be trained to provide information on each wine to help guests acquaint themselves with the different offerings.

New this year, special designated driver/minor tickets are available for $20, for those who wish to attend but not participate in the wine tasting. Unlimited punch will be provided for these guests, who will also have full access to food, the silent auction, and music.

The evening will start with a 6 pm social hour, followed by the wine tasting and food from 7 to 9 pm. Live music will begin at 9 pm, with the silent auction running from 7 to 11 pm, and the live wine auction at 11 pm. Items and services are still being collected for the auction, and the Opera House asks that patrons consider donating an item towards the fundraising efforts. Please contact Deb for more information on making a tax-deductible donation.

All proceeds from the event will be used to help with operating expenses for productions and upgrades for the theatre. Mark your calendar and get your tickets now for the gala event of the season! Tickets to the Wine Tasting must be purchased by September 24th. Contact the theatre at 947-2174 or stop by the Latté Lobby for more information or to purchase your tickets.
