Wine tasting raises money for the Richfield Foundation

The Richfield Foundation’s key fundraising event takes place next month.

The 5th Annual Autumn Wine Tasting is 6:30-9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 12, at Woodlake Centre, 6601 Lyndale Ave., Richfield.

Attendees will have the chance to sample a variety of wines, which can be ordered during the event at specially discounted prices, and be picked up shortly thereafter at the Richfield Liquor Store, at 6444 Lyndale Ave.

Prizes are also in store during the tasting. Hopefuls can enter to win a “Wall of Wine” containing more than 48 bottles. On top of that, additional door prizes and drawings will be available throughout the evening.

As the Richfield Foundation’s main fundraiser, the Autumn Wine Tasting’s proceeds go back to the Richfield community, as the foundation pursues its mission to fund a host of organizations. The foundation awards more than $15,000 in grant funding every year.

Within Woodlake Centre, the wine tasting will be held in the BMO Harris/Houlihan’s building.

Tickets, available at, are $40, or $280 for a party of eight.
