What is it all about?

It's About Giving Back and Having Fun!

The members of the Flower Mound Rotary Club invite you to participate in our 12th Annual Vine and Dine Fundraiser on January 27, 2018 at the Hilton Garden Inn on US121 in Lewisville. This premier event is an evening filled with amazing people, wine, food and fun.

During the wine stroll guests will sample many fine wines from around the world and then enjoy several courses of exquisite dining. From appetizer to dessert, each course will be paired with a specially matched glass of wine to complement each service. Live auction and live music will complete the evening's affair.

All proceeds raised benefit the charities and civic service projects of the Flower Mound Rotary and Rotary International.

Thank you for helping change children's lives!

the Evening begins with a wine stroll at 7pm

A stroll through wine country

If you are interested in trying a variety of wines in a fun and festive setting with friends, our "Wine Stroll" is perfect for you. We will have over fifty different wines that will surely please any palate from newbie to sophisticated. In the past we have had wines such as Clois de Bois, Ruffino, Hogue, Caymus, Kendall Jackson, Meomi and Mondavi, just to name a few. You will have the opportunity to sample a nice table wine you can find at your local grocer for under $20 a bottle all the way to exclusive labels only found in the finest restaurants for upwards of $150 a bottle.

So whether you are interested in finding a perfect wine to have with dinner at home, a special wine to have out at dinner with friends or you just want to come and "Stroll" with friends and sample wines from all over the world, this event is for you.

During the evening, in addition to the wine stroll and auction, we will be doing some other fun activities.

  • We will have two raffles: Naomi’s Village Raffle ($25: winner will receive a beautiful piece of jewelry) and Cork Off ($100: winner will receive an auction item of their choice).

Preservation Hall’s evening performances are recognized as some of the world’s last “pure musical experiences,” presenting authentic, traditional New Orleans jazz, played by the city’s finest. Experience the living legends that won Preservation Hall the Zagat award for 'Best Appeal' for 2009 New Orleans Nightlife. There is no bar service, air-conditioning, or other modern updates, Preservation Hall is a truly unique experience for kids and adults alike. In the words of Louis Armstrong: “Preservation Hall, now that’s where you’ll find all the greats”.
