Are you ready for a great night out? The Princeton Rotary Club will once again be hosting its mid-winter Winefest and Appetizer Night on Saturday, March 1. It is a fun filled social evening with wine tasting, appetizers, raffles and silent auctions. Rotary is pleased  to have several Okanagan – Similkameen wineries represented this year including Seven Stones, Rustic Roots, Forbidden Fruit, Gehringer Bros, Hester Creek, Vincor and Lake Valley. Each winery will have a variety of red, white and specialty wines for guests to sample.

“This has always been a popular event and local businesses have helped make it a success,” said Rob Marshall, event coordinator. Tickets are $30 and are available at Royal Lepage or from local Rotary members. All proceeds will go toward local Rotary projects including the Riverside Kitchen project. The event runs from 7 to 10 p.m., at the Riverside Centre.
