To The Daily Sun,
What an amazing event. Lakes Region Uncorked 2015, held Nov. 5 at Church Landing, was both a successful fundraiser for Lakes Region Community Services (LRCS) and also an enjoyable evening out for all who attended. Our many guests, vendors, sponsors, donors and volunteers went above and beyond to make Uncorked, which has become the Lakes Region's premiere event for locally-made wine, beer, mead, coffee, foods and desserts — the biggest and best yet.
It is so gratifying to live and work in the Lakes Region, and enjoy such community-wide support for an event showcasing local businesses and raising much appreciated funds for the individuals and families we serve. In our work, LRCS is committed to working locally and Uncorked is a way to celebrate and honor this.
This year's Uncorked featured 23 vendors, 70 silent auction items, a 50-bottle WOW (Wall of Wine) donation table, more than 225 guests and 11 sponsors. We are still counting donations, auction proceeds, and ticket sales. However, it is clear that when all is said and done, the event will have raised significant funds to help individuals and families served by LRCS.
Thank you to title sponsor, Meredith Village Savings Bank, and all of the corporate sponsors of Uncorked 2015: CGI Business Solutions, LRGHealthcare, Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion, Franklin Savings Bank, Leone, McDonnell & Roberts, M&P Insurance, Prescription Center, Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare, RMON Networks and Wood & Clay. Our thanks also to the Common Man and Mill Falls for their event support.
Mark your calendars for Nov. 3, 2016, to join us for Lakes Region Uncorked 2016.
Christine Santaniello, Executive Director
Lakes Region Community Services
