Wine tasting

UTICA — The Illinois Valley Symphony Orchestra will host its ninth annual wine tasting fundraising event from 5 to 8 p.m. May 4 at Celebration 150, located on Route 6, Utica.

This year IVSO will honor Ralph and Barbara Bowermaster for their tremendous dedication and unwavering support of the IVSO.

An event not to miss, “Toast of the Town” celebrates culture and music around the world featuring IVSO players with auctions, raffle items, international cheeses and food, and of course, more than 100 wines to taste.

New this year, the event will be introducing the IVSO “VIP” Wine Garden after party featuring the music group “212”. 212’s repertoire includes Top 40 Alternative and classic rock.

Proceeds will benefit Illinois Valley Symphony Orchestra. Regular tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door on the night of the event, and “VIP” access only sold at the event. Tickets may be purchased from IVSO Board members, Herman’s Package Store, local Citizens First National Banks or online at www.IVSO.org. For more information about the wine tasting, call 815-223-8582 or go to www.ivso.org/Wine_Tasting.html.
