The Kiwanis Club of Los Alamos is thrilled to announce the menu for its second annual wine dinner fundraiser. The special event starts with cocktails at 5:30 p.m. and dinner at 6:30 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 21 at the Dixie Girl Restaurant, 1789 Central Ave.
“Autumn in Tuscany” is this year’s theme for the wine dinner. Irby Wood, Regional Sales Rep for Majestic Wines and nephew of legendary winemaker Jess Jackson of Kendall Jackson Winery is hosting the dinner. As the expert Sommelier, he will be on hand to describe each of the special wines being served with each course.
Reservations are required as space is limited and filling fast. The cost is $100 per person. To reserve seats for this “not to be missed” event, call Karen Kendall at 412-3793 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
