On Saturday, September 13th, from noon to 6 p.m., more than a dozen local businesses and restaurants throughout Milwaukee’s Third Ward come together to host the charity fundraiser, ‘Wine In The Ward’. The goal of this second annual event is to raise both awareness and funds in support of the non-profit, mental health center, Our Space Inc.
"The Wine In The Ward event is very important to us," said Jennifer Meden, Executive Director of Our Space Inc. “It raises both vitally important funds as well as awareness of the mental health issues and needs here in our community.
Through the generous donations of participating restaurants and businesses, we are able to create an afternoon full of wines and foods—all while supporting Our Space Inc.’s important work for those who have experienced mental illness.”
While this year’s Wine In The Ward event has twice as many businesses participating, there are only 250 tickets available for purchase. Attendees of this year’s event will sample 11 wines and appetizers at each participating location. Along with the sampling, attendees will receive a commemorative wine glass and gift bags with specially developed discounts and offers from all participating businesses.
Participating restaurants and businesses for the 2014 WITW include:
