This premier winter fundraising event will take place on Thursday, Nov. 19th from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. in Atlantis’ Grand Ballroom. Experience the area’s best wineries, microbreweries, restaurants, and ski resorts during this one-of-a-kind event.

Winter Wine & Ski participants will not only enjoy fine wine sampling, but also beer from local microbreweries, and food from the local restaurants. Winter sports gear donated by Scheels, wine, and potential holiday gifts will be available for bid during the silent auction, and all attendees will be eligible for a chance to win a wheelbarrow filled with wine, provided by Wirtz Beverage.
