Description of project Each attending individual purchases an entry ticket and brings a bottle of wine. The bottles of wine are pooled into prizes (usually about 30) and draws are done using the entry ticket as the entry. Before any wine draws are done, tickets are drawn for door prizes and then returned into the draws. Wine is served during the draws and additional draw entry tickets are available for purchase. There are also tickets for a 50/50 draw and Rainbow Auction for sale to attending individuals. A light lunch is offered during the intermission.
