Country Traditions will be hosting a wine tasting fundraiser for the Appalachian Women’s Museum Friday, July 25th from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Tickets are $10 each and may be purchased at the event. Ticket holders will receive samples of wine, gourmet food and a souvenir wine glass.
All of the profits from the tickets sales will go directly to the Appalachian Women’s Museum.
Country Traditions will also donate 10% of any wine sales during the event to AWM.
Janet Chinners, co-owner of Country Traditions, enjoys nothing more than giving back to the community.
“I knew I wanted to help the Appalachian Women’s Museum because it will be such a special addition to this town. It will share the history of Dillsboro to the community and all those who visit,” said Chinners.
The Appalachian Women’s Museum’s mission “is to gather, preserve, and share the stories of the women of Southern Appalachia.”
Museum leaders recently reported that they have hit the $10,000 mark of a $16,000 fundraising goal earmarked to restore the roof of the historic Monteith House, AWM’s future home.
