Grape Expectations...Haute Event, Good Cause!

This great, now annual, event started four years ago and is now a huge success! Grape Expectations is not only a fun night of drinking wine!, but it benefits a wonderful cause. My husband and I try to attend each year and since last year we have become an ongoing event sponsor.

The Lexington Charity Club, Urban League Young Professionals, Lexington Young Professionals Association, UK College of Law- Student Bar Association and the Fayette County Bar Association – Young Lawyers Section have joined together to present the 4th Grape Expectations!

Thursday, August 23rd , 7:00 p.m.- 9:30 p.m.
Crowne Plaza, Harrodsburg Road
.
Proceeds from this event benefit Prevent Child Abuse Kentucky.
PCAK is Kentucky’s only statewide child abuse prevention organization.


Grape Expectations is a competitive wine tasting event, where teams of four bring a total four bottles of wine. Three of the four bottles of wine are presented for tasting and judged on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the best. The winning team will take home the unopened fourth bottles of wine. The team with the lowest score, however, takes home their fourth bottle of wine.

To attend this event, the cost is a donation of $10 per person at the door. In addition to the wine tasting, there will also be a silent and live auction from 7:30 p.m. – 8:45 p.m., with the opportunity to bid on items such as Lexington Legends tickets, event passes and much more.
