Use of project funds
The flight, hotel and food costs will run approximately $1,000 per person. We have 14 players, 14 parents s well as the coach and assistant coach.
We will be hosting a number of events over the next few months. Our premier event will be a Wine and Chocolate pairing at Caroline Cellars who are a local winery in Niagara on the Lake. There are 4 days (March 2, 24, April 13 and 14) where Caroline Cellars is donating their facilities to help us reach our goal. We will be selling tickets; 2 for $25 or $15 each.
Each session will be half an hour in length with a maximum of 60 people. It includes a tasting of 4 wines (1 White, 1 Dry Rose, 1 Red and 1 Ice Wine) paired with 3 chocolates. The chocolate is good quality made specifically for pairing with wine. Customers will get to sample 3; 1 milk, 1 dark and 1 white.
