Tickets sales have started for the "Fall Harvest Festival," Wall of Wine Auction & Salons
Log on to the Fall Harvest Festival website pronto to get the best selection of Salon tickets as well as festival tickets and numbered corks for the Wall of Wine (WOW) auction at the Village's Mini-Gala, the
October 2 Fall Harvest Festival.
To go to the Festival website click here or on the banner at the top of this page.
The Fall Festival fundraiser, from 6 to 8 p.m. on Oct. 2, will honor Ris Lacoste, owner and chef of Ris Restaurant, with our first FBWE Village Torch Award for Community Spirit.
The Festival will be held in the Atrium of Saint Paul’s Parish, (also home to the Foggy Bottom West End Village Offices), at 2430 K Street NW.
This is our major fundraising event of the year, and we encourage everyone to support this effort. If you cannot attend, please make a donation or buy tickets to a salon at a later date.
Tickets for the event, wine corks for our wine auction and tickets for the salons went on sale Friday, Sept. 1 at the special Festival website.
A ticket for a single person is $100; groups of six paid for with a single credit card or check are $500 ($410 of which is tax deductible). If you have at least six people, you can buy additional individual tickets for $85 each.
For $100 tickets, $85 is tax deductible. For $85 tickets, $70 is deductible.
Wine corks cost $30 each. Everyone who buys six corks or more will get a Trader Joe's carrier bag to take their wine home to enjoy.
When you arrive at the event, you will receive the number of corks you purchased, and each cork will be numbered. That number will match the number on one bottle of wine in our Wall of Wine (though no peeking). The numbered bottle that corresponds with your numbered cork may be a fine premium vintage that retails for more than $300 ... or it could be a nice bottle of table wine. (Everyone wins!)
Salon tickets cost $85 each ($70 tax deductible). We suggest that you sign up for the salons quickly as many have a limited number of attendees. Most salons will be held in our hosts’ homes.
And, of course, we welcome additional tax-deductible donations, which can be made using your credit card on the Festival website. When buying tickets for the festival or salons, buying corks for the wine auction, or making a donation, you will be asked to provide contact information for yourself and your guests to process your tickets via email.
Both wine corks and salon tickets will also be on sale at the Fall Festival event itself. However, you will save time and make sure you get the salon tickets you really want by purchasing online prior to the event.
Again, click here to go directly to the Festival website for all purchases.
All donors who contribute prior to September 15 will be recognized in the event program. After the event, all donations will be acknowledged for tax purposes and also recognized on the Village's website at www.fbwevillage.org.
