Wine, chocolate to flow at Friday fundraiser

-A +A
The seventh annual Wine & Chocolate Tasting, sponsored by Soroptimist International of Colfax, starts at 6 p.m. Friday, May 20, at the historic Railroad Depot. The evening will include live music, light appetizers and a silent art auction featuring pieces handcrafted by local artists. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Cathie Hunter scholarship fund, which awards a $500 scholarship to a Colfax High School art student. The scholarship is named in memory of Hunter, a former art instructor at the high school and Soroptimist member. Proceeds from the community event will also go toward Soroptimist service projects. Tickets are $20 each and entitle each guest to five wine-tasting tickets and as many samples of chocolate as desired. Tickets will be available at the door.
