The 10th annual Swine & Wine dinner and dance benefiting the Eastern Shore Boys & Girls Club is rapidly approaching but tickets are still available for the gala evening on Saturday, Oct. 19th, at 6:00 PM. The fundraiser will again be staged at the Mary N. Smith Cultural Enrichment Center, 24577 Mary N. Smith Road, near Accomac.
Swine & Wine will feature roast pig, chicken and all the sides plus wine and beer and other beverages. This year the H. M. Johnson Band will provide music for your enjoyment and dancing. A silent auction will feature Eastern Shore art, golfing trips, fishing gear and many other items.
The Eastern Shore Boys & Girls Club has approximately 200 members with 55 percent of the membership qualifying for free or reduced meals at schools and 59 percent coming from single parent homes. Last year, the club served over 25,000 meals at programs that are conducted after school and all-day during summer vacation weekdays.
The mission focus of the Club is for members to achieve academic success, develop good character and citizenship and maintain healthy lifestyles.
Tickets to the celebration are $50 and $40 for young adults 30 years and younger. For more information or to purchase tickets, call Shannon Gordon at 787-7577, or go to www.swineandwineforthekids.com.
