The Catholic Charities Wine Tasting Event that is being held on April 20th at the Great Bend Event Center is our major annual fundraiser. Going on 17 years, this popular social event draws people from miles around for a fun and classy evening while providing critical funds for pregnancy counseling, Teen Mom support, educational classes, housing support, economic assistance, disaster relief, and more. It helps to bridge the gap between the many needs that walk through our doors and the funding that we are able to secure through other grants and appeals.
The success of the Wine Tasting relies on the help of our friends and supporters. You can play an important role in furthering the mission Catholic Charities by sponsoring the wine tasting event, or by donating an item to be included in our live or silent auction.
From concert tickets, sports packages and memorabilia, luxury travel, exquisite handcrafted pieces, decadent dining and, of course, lots of fine wine and beer, the Catholic Charities auction features a number of unique items and exciting experiences. If you have something you would like to contribute, please let us know!
