Enjoy a magical evening of wine, exceptional cuisine and entertainment as Willow Park Wines & Spirits hosts its 30th annual charity event on Saturday, October 14, 2023. For one night only, the store will transform into the fantastical world of Wonderland and raise money for local community groups.
Alongside the white rabbits, grinning cats and queen of hearts, the evening will also host numerous talented winemakers and chefs. Enjoy the euphoria of Wonderland and take pleasure in good wine and good people. This is your chance to experience first-class wines from 25 different wineries and gourmet bites from 20 of Calgary’s best restaurants, all while giving back to your community. While the array of food and beverage delicacies may bring on enchantment, the real magic is in the funds raised for this year’s beneficiaries.
Having raised more than $5 million in the last three decades, Willow Park Wines & Spirits has set the bar high for the 30th anniversary. This year’s proceeds will go to Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation, Hospice Calgary Children’s Grief Centre and Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Canada. Because of events like this, more and more local teenagers can get the mental health help they need, grieving children and adolescents are supported, and we can help get one step closer to a world without MS. The money you help raise allows there to be hope for health and happiness for individuals in your community.
Bid at both the Charity Wine Auction on-site the evening of October 14th as well as the silent auction online, which launches October 8 and closes October 22. It’s the perfect chance to show your support and go home with priceless experiences, trips and top-quality items.
This year, Willow Park Wines & Spirits has partnered with the Calgary Co-op Community Foundation. “Our collaboration has been seamless and we look forward to continuing this event together,” says Willow Park’s director of marketing, Kelsey Glass. The partnership is an ideal fit as community is at the heart of everything the foundation does. Over the years, the foundation has worked alongside several food banks, meal programs and other partners that work towards providing food, shelter and diverse assistance for vulnerable populations.
“It’s important to continue to support the community that supports us and give back where we can,” says Glass. “It’s [a] privilege to host the 30th Charity Wine Auction and [we] can’t wait to continue to raise funds for our charities this year.”
The wondrous evening begins at 7 p.m. Purchase your tickets soon as this premiere wine and food event sells out every year.
