Trash to Treasure Charity Auction 2010

The 7th Annual Trash to Treasure Auction and Wine Tasting Event is just around the corner.  Friday, August 27th to be exact. This annual event is sponsored by the St. Charles Women in Business and is held in conjunction with Gladiolus Days, the annual city celebration in St. Charles, MN.  (How did that sneak up on me so fast????)

This year for the wine tasting we are featuring wines from local wineries.  So far we have wine from Cannon River Winery, Garvin Heights Winery, Whitewater Wines and Danzinger Vineyards and Winery with wine from one or two more yet to come.  We also have a California wine labeled None in Eight with a pink ribbon  -- get it?  One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer.  This number is not acceptable.  Hence, the goal is None in Eight and a portion of the sale of each bottle is donated for breast cancer research.  I love it!

Here are some 'before' shots of a few of my treasures for the auction.  I'll have 'afters' for you next time.

Bring your friends, bring your checkbook and bring your friends' checkbooks to the south lawn of the Victorian Lace Inn -- 1512 Whitewater Avenue, St. Charles, MN on Friday, Aug. 27th. Wine tasting and auction preview start at 4:30 with music by the Bandanas, and the auction begins at 6:00 pm.
