Nearly 100 people were logged on to virtually attend the 5th Annual Floyd Valley Foundation Wine and Craft Beer tasting event held Saturday, November 14. In addition to those participating in the bidding and program viewing, over 40 tasting-to-go orders went out for participants to enjoy prior to the live streaming event.
This year’s 1st ever virtual event is projected to net over $43,935. The proceeds will be placed in the Greatest Needs Fund for a future medical equipment purchase or project.
The tasting-to-go packages were comprised of select wine and craft beer, various selections of barbecue and smoked salmon. The live streaming event had a virtual auction with a variety of items to bid on, several special guest videos, and a virtual treasure hunt! Attendees not only helped raise funds, they also enjoyed a fun evening with friends and family from the comfort of their home!
The Floyd Valley Foundation would like to thank the planning committee, the sponsors, auction donors and the participants.
“The goal of the planning committee was to find something for the community to enjoy safely and continue to try to raise funds for patient care, and I believe we accomplished that.” stated Amy Harnack, Foundation Manager. “We are extremely grateful for the support from the community and businesses who contributed in helping to hold this event again this year.”
In addition to annual giving and planned giving opportunities, the Foundation hosts two community events during the year to support special projects and the needs for Floyd Valley Healthcare.
