4th Annual Richmond Wine Opener

The 4th Annual Richmond Wine Opener is coming this fall to the Rotunda at the Science Museum.  Thursday November 6th, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Richmond will host a wine event featuring 150 wines from around the world and 10+ local restaurants serving up some of their finest fare for you to sample.  In addition musicians Noah Paley and Coyote will be on hand providing some great music to sip and savor to.  Also make sure to bring your checkbook, there will be great items up for bids in both live and silent auctions.

The event is $65 in advance and $75 at the door and it benefits the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. ($35 dollars of each ticket is tax deductible)

I am trying to help build some awareness for this event through the blogging community here in Richmond, so I made the nice little badge you see to the left.  It would be great if you could snag it and put on your websites and blogs to help generate some buzz for this event.  Even if you aren’t a Richmond blogger, it would be cool if you can have it on your site, you never know what Richmonder might be reading.

An updated list of the wines being poured and the restaurants that will be sampling food will be out soon, and when it is I will post it up.

For tickets you can go to this WEBSITE or call Amy McCraken at 804.527.1500

Code for the badge – copy and paste the text below. When you grab the badge, leave a comment so I can know what sites have it. 🙂
