White Barrel Winery Event Successful

Another first for AARP Blacksburg was co-hosting a social/fundraising event with our organization partner, LLI at Virginia Tech. The event was held at the White Barrel Winery in Christiansburg on October 27 and was attended by 44 members and friends of the chapter and LLI. Participants paid $25 and received one glass of wine, unlimited hot appetizers, and more than two hours of joyous conversation. The event yielded $550 that will be used mainly to support LLI. 

This event was fun and sets the stage for other similar events to enrich our social lives and our programming budget.
