Gleneagle Sertoma Spirits of Spring
Gleneagle Sertoma continues its tradition of helping its neighbors with a tenth annual “Spirits of Spring” auction, wine tasting and food sampling May 17 at the scenic Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame.
For the past nine years the club has hosted the Spirits of Spring Wine and Food Tasting to raise money for local charities. Each year the event raised between ten and fifteen thousand dollars for such causes as Tri-Lakes Cares, The Home Front Cares, and Mission Medical Clinic, with all the money raised staying in the local Colorado Springs community. The Sertoma charter of SERvice TO MAnkind supports programs for the hearing-impaired with free audiology exams and hearing aids for low-income people in the community.
Last year’ s event had the largest turnout yet and we are hoping you will attend this year’s event to support your community.
The live auction will include travel, condos, jewelry, and dinners. The silent auction includes wines and jewelry as well as many other lovely items to fit any budget.
This year we will have a live and silent auction along with food provided by many or our local chiefs and restaurants. You will be able to sample foods from Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Ted’s Montana Grill, Biaggi’s Ristorante Italiano, Texas Road House, Bourbon Brothers, California Pizza Kitchen, Garbanzo’s, Jack Quinn’s, and Freddy’s. In addition, many certificates for dining will be up for bid on the silent auction.
Wine sampling and tastings are being provided by one of Colorado Springs' premier wine and liquor stores, Downtown Fine Spirits and Wines. They have one of the best selections of spirits, wines and beers in the area and feature many Colorado beers and spirits. Your sipping will come with helpful tasting hints by each of the individual wine distributors waiting to serve you.
Don’t forget to stop by the Sugarland Soda table for vintage soda pop. Many people follow it with a visit to the Blue Bell Ice Cream table to assemble the rest of an ice-cream float treat.
Tickets may be purchased in advance through contacting our website or at the door.
