The Ocean Isle Museum Foundation Inc. (OIMF) hosted its annual Wine Fest fundraiser May 3. More than 250 people enjoyed an evening of tasting wine, sampling food, participating in a cork pull and 50/50 raffle, and bidding on live and silent auction items. Proceeds from Wine Fest will be used to support the Museum of Coastal Carolina in Ocean Isle Beach and Ingram Planetarium in Sunset Beach.
The OIMF would like to thank the following sponsors that helped make Wine Fest a success: Jessie & Myers Construction, T.J. and Elizabeth Lewis and Thad’s Carpet One, Dan and Linda Lynes, Frying Pan Towers B&B, Brunswick Community College, Coastal Pool/PPM, KoolABrew, Sunset River Marketplace and Victoria’s Ragpatch.
In addition, special thanks are given to Ernie Perry, the evening’s auctioneer; Mutual Distributing Company for supplying the wine and Pelican’s Perch, The Purple Onion Café and Sharky’s Waterfront Dining for providing the food.
Thanks also to Stan Barwikowski and Silver Coast Winery for organizing and hosting this year’s amateur wine competition and the OIMF Board of Trustees and to Jim Myers, chairman of the Wine Fest planning committee, for his outstanding efforts.
