The 27th Annual Midwest Winefest will kick off in April with the Old Town Walkabout and the Reserve Room.
The Walkabout on Thursday, April 21st will feature stops across Wichita’s Old Town District where attendees can sample food from local restaurants and a variety of wines.
The Reserve Room follows on Friday, April 22nd at The Vail on North Mosley. Reserve guests will taste high-end wines paired with small plates and attend Winefest’s famed live auction.
New this year, Eck Auto Group is donating a new vehicle from Ford, Kia, or Toyota up to $30,000 in value. Tickets will be sold online for $50 each, and 5 finalists will be chosen beginning January 28th. The winner will be drawn from the finalists at the Walkabout on April 21st. As many readers know, I love a good raffle and have already purchased my ticket.
Tickets for all events can be purchased at MidwestWinefest.org via Eventbrite.
The proceeds of Midwest Winefest benefit the Guadalupe Health Foundation, whose mission is to support the poor and uninsured patients of Guadalupe Clinic. It’s the only free full-time clinic in the state. The patients that come to the clinic are all uninsured (no private insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid) and their income is within 250% of the Federal Poverty Level. While they mainly do primary care, they also have several specialists for their patients to see. There is one paid Physician Assistant at each clinic, and the rest of the doctors and specialists volunteer their time – as little as 4 hours a month – to see patients. All of their services and specialties can be found on their website: https://www.guadalupeclinic.org
