Maple Grove Lions Hold Wine and Beer Fundraiser
Tonight is the third annual Maple Grove Lion’s Club Wine-and-Beer-Tasting fundraiser. Money raised will go right back into the Maple Grove community.
The event runs from 7 to 9:30 at the Maple Grove Community Center. Advance tickets are already sold out, but if you don’t have one and the room isn’t full, walk-up tickets may be available. The Lion’s Club uses donations to fund programs such as assistance to victims of house fires.
“The money that we share is not with strangers,” says Lion’s Club President John Beacham. “You meet these people eyeball to eyeball. You watch the tears roll down their faces. Some with sadness, some with joy. First with sadness in need, and then joy when they know someone is there to help them and support them.”
