Vino in the Valley Supports Breast Cancer 3-Day Team Ticket prices are $15 in advance, $20 at the door with all proceeds going toward Breast Cancer Research and the 3 Day!

The Rush River Valley’s newest dining treasure is offering support to a local team of walkers raising funds for Susan G. Komen For the Cure. The team, creatively named the “Mammary Makers”, currently includes siblings Becky Beissel and Jenny Funk along with Justina Lansing-Wakefield and Pam Peterson of Ellsworth, Rachel Funk, Menomonie and Mandy McKenzie, Lakeville, MN.

The event, appropriately named “Raising Glasses for the Cure”, will be a wine tasting benefit held on August 18, 2007 from 4:00pm to 6:00pm, at Vino in the Valley in rural Maiden Rock, WI. The tasting will feature appetizers and several varieties of wine, surrounded by the beauty of Vino’s astounding scenery. A silent auction and rare solo appearance by Anita Straub, of Thurston Hill fame, will round out the event.

No reservations are required but advance tickets are recommended. The special event will coincide with Vino’s regular menu offerings. Advance tickets can be purchased at a discounted price through several local establishments including Brad’s Corner Liquor, Compass Financial Services, Cubby’s Video and Tanning, the Mammary Makers Team at 715-273-0218 as well as at Vino in the Valley during their regular business hours. Tickets may also be purchased at the door.

All proceeds from the event will benefit breast cancer research and the Breast Cancer 3-Day. Taking place in 12 cities nationwide, the Breast Cancer 3-Day is a three day, 60-mile walk that provides an opportunity to educate tens of thousands of people about breast health, including the importance of early detection. Funds raised through the Breast Cancer 3-Day are used for breast cancer research, education, and community outreach programs.
