Catholic Charities seeks sponsors for annual Charity Wine Tasting fundraiser

Editor’s Note: With the talk of heroes in this special Catholic Schools Week issue, I find that this article quickly calls to mind some of my personal heroes, the staff at Catholic Charities of Southwest Kansas. They help the poorest of the poor, those on the fringes of society. They are truly doing the Lord’s work every day. The following was submitted by Rebecca Ford of Catholic Charities.

Catholic Charities’ biggest fundraiser of the year, a Charity Wine Tasting Event and Auction, takes place on Friday, May 3 at the Great Bend Events Center, 3111 10th Street in Great Bend.

Catholic Charities is accepting event sponsorships and donations for both the live and silent auction components of the Annual Wine Tasting Event throughout February.

Sponsorships help us to underwrite the costs of the event (facility rental, catering, tasting beverages, printing and advertising costs, etc.) so that more of the event profit goes to help those in need. If you can’t think of a fitting auction item, a sponsorship may be the perfect way to go! We strive to acknowledge our appreciation for the generosity of you or your business, no matter how small, and topping out with the Champagne sponsorship of $2,000.

   As you know, the needs of those who struggle don’t go away. Just when we get one family back on their feet, another family gets hit with a medical emergency, a pregnancy, or perhaps a job furlough they weren’t prepared to handle. Regardless of the circumstance, we believe that every human being has value, and that they are worthy of compassionate help to get back on their feet.

    The Annual Charity Wine Tasting Event features a wonderful live and silent auction with many items for men, women, and children that are original, creative, beautiful, useful, delicious, collectible or unusual! Like the disciples to whom Jesus said “Cast the net on the right-hand side of the boat, and you will find a catch,” we are casting our nets for a catch of auction items over the next month, so that we can raise additional funds for those in need. These can be physical items, sports-related items, original pieces, eccentric pieces, dinners, excursions, vacation packages, gift certificates, and especially wine and beer-related items to go along with the theme of a wine tasting.

To sponsor the wine tasting, or to donate something for the live or silent auction, download this form (go to https://catholiccharitiesswks.org/wine-tasting-event), fill out the appropriate side and send it in, along with any logo and ad materials for your sponsorship level, by the end of February. One side of the form is for sponsorships and the other side is for auction donations.

What if you don’t have a lot of money to donate, bid, or sponsor? Volunteer your time! It takes a team to make this event happen. We are always in need of volunteers (and ever so grateful for the help!), even if you only have a little time to spare.

Commitment forms and donations can be mailed, emailed or hand-delivered to Catholic Charities, 2201 16th St, Great Bend KS 67530, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

For more information, or to volunteer your time, please contact the event coordinator, Rebecca Ford, at 620-792-1393.
