Slow Food Vast Wine Fundraiser at Barrel Oak Winery

Barrel Oak Winery in Virginia frequently offers events that support nonprofit and charities. On April 30th the winery will have a fundraiser to support John XXIII Montessori Children’s Center.

The Slow Food Vast Wine event will feature wine regions including the Mediterranean, California, New York and Virginia. Artisanal foods will be paired with wines. The foods will showcase local foods from several well-known farms. Obtain tickets at www.slowfoodvastwine.org

In addition to wine and food, a silent auction will provide the opportunity to bid for wine and food. According to an email we received participants can “Culminate your evening on the patio under the stars for exquisite Port and Dessert pairings, and our exciting Live Auction of exemplary wines, exhilarating getaways, and epicurean delights.”

Information on the John XXIII Montessori Children’s Center website notes that the center  “was founded in 2003 as a non-profit organization (501(c)3) for the purpose of offering the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) Atrium program for children. CGS is a unique religious formation method based on Montessori principles and grounded in Thomistic philosophy in the Catholic tradition. Recently the Missionaries of Charity, Mother Teresa’s order, have taken training in CGS and are now implementing it worldwide in their work with poor children and orphans….” To find out more, visit the John XXIII Montessori Children’s Center website.
