Catholic Social Service is billing its 12th annual charity wine-tasting event as a way to tour the world of wine while helping those in need.
Tickets are on sale for the event, which takes place from 7-10 p.m. on Friday, April 26, at the Club at StoneRidge in Great Bend. Tickets are $35 per person, $250 for a table of eight or $375 for a table of 12, and can be purchased at the Catholic Social Service office, 2201 16th St.
With the help of Standard Beverage in Wichita and Chlumsky Liquormart in Great Bend, the event features award-winning wines from Kansas vintners, a new selection of wines from around the world, and friendly connoisseurs to answer wine-related questions, according to Rebecca Ford at CSS. There will also be music by classical guitarist Richard J Falcon Jr., live and silent auctions, and other games and prizes.
The wine tasting event has come the major annual fundrasier for the nonprofit organization, Ford said. “The revenue that Catholic Social Service receives from the wine tasting event helps to bridge the gap from receding grant dollars so that we can continue to provide the same level of service for those in need.”
As the Catholic Charities agency for southwest Kansas, Catholic Social Service has been providing help and hope for people in need, regardless of their faith, since 1965. Services include free pregnancy counseling, teen mom support, adoption services, marriage and healthy relationship classes, addiction and recovery counseling, economic assistance and disaster relief.

A block of rooms have been reserved for out-of-town guests who call the Best Western Angus Inn before April 12. Additional information is available at www.catholicsocialservice.org/wine-tasting-event.
