Tasting Wine for a Great Cause
100% of Proceeds to Benefit Scholarship in Memory of Local Girl

 

The Party Source is hosting a Cheers to a Great Cause event that sponsors the Krystal Pepper Memorial Scholarship Fund.  The class, led by Jay Erisman, will be a two-hour tour of up and coming French winemakers and wine regions.

 

Krystal Pepper, sister to CWB member Michelle Lentz, was a 21-year-old education major at Thomas More College. She died unexpectedly in October, 2007, from an undiagnosed congenital heart defect. After her death, her family established the scholarship at Thomas More in her memory. The scholarship fund will help other education majors like Krystal.

 

The wine tasting event will be held September 11, from 6-8 pm.  Cost is $40 per person and includes a flight of wines and cheese and the wine class, with 100% of the proceeds going supporting the scholarship fund. Registration is online only. You can learn more about the scholarship and register for the event at http://www.klpscholarship.org
