Winery, fire dept. team up for fundraiser
Aug 28, 2013 / 7:15 pm
A fund-raiser to benefit the Penticton Safety Village is set for Sept. 14 at the Red Rooster Winery on Naramata Road.
The winery and Penticton Fire Department have joined forces to help out the safety village with the Roost on Fire fundraising picnic.
The goal is to raise $10,000 for ongoing operations at the village, which offers safety education and awareness to children on a variety of topics from bicycle safety, rules of the road, fire hazard awareness and home fire escape planning.
The village is operated by a nonprofit society out of its location at 490 Edmonton Ave., and programs are typically run by students with partial funding support. This did not materialize in 2013.
Event participants can purchase a picnic lunch by Chef Darin Peterson, featuring pulled pork sandwiches, pasta salad and a dessert. They are also invited to take part in outdoor games and visit Andy's Animal Acres.
Fire department staff will also be on hand to do demonstrations.
Picnic baskets are $30, and can be pre-puchased by Sept. 10 with a $5 discount.
WIne by the glass or bottle and sparkling fruit juice will be available.
Those who cannot attend can also take part. The winery will donate $2 for every bottle purchased by phone, website or in-store on Sept. 14 to the village.
Roost on Fire is from noon to 5 p.m. on Sept. 14 at the winery, 891 Naramata Road.
To pre-purchase picnic baskets or for more information, call (250) 492-2424.
