Culmina Family Estate Winery in Oliver is excited to partner with Calgary’s Janice Beaton Fine Cheese to host a fundraising benefit for the Peach City Community Radio Society on May 1st.
Riesling, Records, Raclette, and ‘Raiser will run from 3 to 6 p.m., and will showcase Culmina’s newest release of Decora (Riesling), as well as Raclette-style nibbles from Janice Beaton Fine Cheese, and the eclectic sounds of two DJs (Victoria’s Potashnik and Penticton’s Kevin Rossion) who have generously donated their time.
“Culmina is thrilled to sponsor Peach City Community Radio Society’s programming and their current capital initiative to install a radio tower in the South Okanagan. Like food and wine, music brings people together, encouraging celebration and enjoyment of life. Community radio keeps diversity on the airwaves, a fundamentally important part of our cultural landscape,” said Sara Triggs, sales and marketing manager of Culmina Family Estate Winery.
Dave Del Rizzo, president of the Peach City Community Radio Society, said they are excited to have a founding sponsor like Culmina that is hosting the event in their tasting room.
“We couldn’t think of a better way to spend a few hours in the South Okanagan,” he said.
All proceeds from the $5 door entry will be donated in to Peach City Radio’s Raise the Radio campaign. Door prize on offer for all those who purchase tickets in advance at www.culmina.ca.
