On Wednesday, December 17, Child Advocates II, Inc. (CAII) and 101 Restaurant will host a Wine Tasting for Charity event at the Versailles Lounge of 101 Restaurant in Kleman Plaza, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. to raise funds for the Second Judicial Circuit Guardian ad Litem Program (GAL Program).
CAII is a charitable 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization founded to support the GAL Program. Through fundraising, public outreach, and volunteer support, CAII works closely with the Guardian ad Litem Program to help provide for the needs of abused and neglected children in Gadsden, Jefferson, Leon, Liberty, and Wakulla County.
Since its inception in 1988, CAII has conducted numerous fundraising and marketing events, volunteer recruitment programs, membership drives, and special events, and collected donations to help secure the basic needs of these children.
The cost for sampling an assortment of delicious wines and tasty hors d'oeuvres is $25; general admission is $15. Also available are two levels of sponsorships which will not only help children in need, but promote your business. The platinum level is available for $250 and the titanium level is available for $500.
All sponsors' logos will be placed on lounge table tents and on the CAII website and will be mentioned during any radio and television promotional opportunities.
Titanium level sponsors will also receive special recognition at the event during the keynote presentation. Payment through PayPal is encouraged; cash and check admission will be accepted at the event. Please visit https://gal2.org/events/2014-12-17-wine/ for additional details and to access PayPal.
