Annual Wine Event 2021


As the second year of the Covid-19 and Delta virus disabled the fundraising events we normally have, we were able to successfully implement the second Annual Wine Event to raise funds to support the Meals on Wheels Program. This year we
offered wines from J. Christopher Wines which we were able to purchase at a discount giving our donors the opportunity to receive some lovely and valuable wines with their generous contributions to the program. The Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and
Sauvignon Blanc offerings were packaged as mixed cases and half cases, exclusively from J. Christopher, a Chehalem
Mountain winery, vintages 2017 and 2018-19. The Springs at
Lake Oswego, the new retirement living campus at the corner of
Kruse Way and Boones Ferry offered their location as the
distribution point for the weekend wine pick-up, November 6 &
7, 2021. The Springs even provided entertainment for the
occasion with a Scottish Highlands bagpiper on Saturday and a
Caribbean steel drum musician on Sunday! It was a great venue
for the event and we were extremely grateful to the Springs for
hosting. Again, we raised awareness in the community for the
local Meals on Wheels program, it’s necessity and contribution
as well as being able to give back something of value to the
generous donors to the program. Many thanks to J. Christopher
Wines, The Springs at Lake Oswego, the musicians (who were
in the rain, snow and wind most of the day!!), the LOMOW
board members who organized and delivered wine and to all of
the friends and supporters of Meals on Wheels who donated to
this important event! THANK YOU.
