Staff reports

Wine from over 25 wineries and hors d’oeuvres from some 17 restaurants in the Valley will be waiting for guests at the annual “An Evening of Wine and Roses” at the River Bend Grille at Genoa Lakes July 17.

The event is a benefit for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Northern Nevada and is given by the Carson-Douglas-Fallon-Lyon-Tahoe Board of REALTORS.

Cost for the gala is $30, which includes the wine-tasting, hors d’oeuvres, silent auction, raffle, door prizes and entertainment. Dress is semi-formal, and doors open at 6 p.m.

During the silent auction, $5,000 worth of golf passes from more than 20 golf courses in the Northern Nevada and California areas will be sold.

Tickets will also be sold for a car donated by Dick Campagni and Capitol Ford Mercury and Carson City Toyota. Tickets are $5 each, and only 1,500 are available.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation is dedicated to granting wishes to children who have been diagnosed with life-threatening or terminal illnesses. The agency is non-profit and not affiliated with any other foundation. It relies on private and corporate donations as well as fund-raising events, grant programs and memorial contributions to operate.
