Tickets on sale for beer, wine fundraiser

STERLING – Tickets are available for Wine about Winter, a wine, beer, music and food fest to be held from 6 to 10 p.m. Feb. 23 at Woodlawn Arts Academy, 3807 Woodlawn Road.

There will be wine, craft beer, scotches and spirits to sample, and jazz trio Chameleon will perform.

The event is a benefit for Sterling Main Street, Sauk Valley Area Chamber of Commerce and the academy.

Christy Zepezauer, Woodlawn’s executive director, said the academy always is looking for new ideas “to not only raise funds but to build our partnerships in the community.”

“We do work closely with the Chamber and Main Street,” Zepezauer said. “The three of us got together and said what a great idea to do this event. Why not work together?”

Tickets bought before Feb. 11 are $25 or $45 per couple; they will be $30 or $50 at the door. Admission includes eight tasting tickets per person and hors d’ouevres. A limited number of commemorative glasses will be available.

Call Main Street, 815-626-8610; the chamber, 815-625-2400; or the academy, 815-626-4278, for tickets or more information.
