Join with “Friends for the East Cobb Park, Inc.” for the East Cobb Wine & Vine Market

October 3, 2014



Hosted by the East Cobb Civitan Club and benefitting Friends for the East Cobb Park, this year’s East Cobb Wine & Vine Market will take place on Thursday, Oct. 16, at 6 p.m. at the Olde Town Athletic Club.  This year’s speakers include Georgia’s Attorney General, Sam Olens and Cobb Commission Chair Tim Lee who will serve as honorary co-chairs of the largest fundraising activity for both the East Cobb Civitans and Friends for the East Cobb Park. Tickets are $25 and include appetizers. Guest must be at least 21 years old.

This is the 23rd year for this Silent Auction and Wine Tasting Fundraiser and to date, this “Wine & Vine Market” has raised over $141,000.00 for East Cobb Park and well over $200,000 for local charities such as MUST Ministries, The Center for Family Resources, The Center for Children and Young Adults, as well as, Civitan’s Charities such as Camp Big Heart – a camp for children and young adults with special needs. The Civitans helped spearhead a program with the Georgia Ballet in offering a new “Dance Abilities” class for special needs students.

The Wine Shop at Parkaire provides the wine reps, who bring at least 20 different wines to taste.  The local community provides donated items for the silent auction. Nearly 100 items will be up for bid including gift certificates to local restaurants and entertainment, Glock pistols and a week’s stay in Croatia, Antigua, Tuscany or an African Safari.

There is also a “split the pot” raffle.  Tickets are $10 and on sale now.  The lucky winner will be chosen during this event. With a potential pot of $5,000, your odds are much better than any lottery!
