Wine and Food Tasting Raises Money for Holistic Health Support Programs
The Lexington Medical Center Foundation will host “Wine on the River” at the West Columbia Riverwalk on Saturday, August 20, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. The annual event features live music and wine, craft beer and culinary tastings.
This year, guests will enjoy an expanded event experience starting an hour earlier and new activities promoting wellness, stress relief and community. Proceeds benefit Linda’s Love Fund at Lexington Medical Center, offering patients and their families emotional and psychological support through holistic health programs.
“’Wine on the River’ allows people to enjoy an evening by the beautiful sights and sounds of the Congaree River while sampling delicious food and beverages and supporting a cause that benefits many people in our community,” said Amy Lanier, executive director of the Lexington Medical Center Foundation.
The around-the-world culinary and wine pairings will feature food prepared by Capital City Catering. Guests can also sample a signature sangria by Twist Bartending Services and craft beer tastings from Peak Drift Brewing Company.
