‘Wine & Art’ fundraiser Aug. 22.

PENTWATER – The Pentwater Women’s Club hosts the Wine & Art fundraiser Sunday, Aug. 22, from 2-5 p.m. at Park Place which will feature wine tasting and appetizers; a silent auction of items donated by local artists and area businesses; and a quilt raffle.  

The PWC generally holds the scholarship fundraiser at the end of May but due to COVID-19, it was delayed until August.  

Grand sponsors are Shelby State Bank of Pentwater and West Shore Bank of Ludington. Wine tasting is sponsored by Pentwater business, Port View, with over 40 wines to sample.

In a relatively new addition to the PWC annual fundraiser, this year’s event offers the raffling of a locally-inspired quilt named, “Pentwater Fireworks.” The design and colors are a reflection of fireworks displays in Pentwater held on the Fourth of July and during Homecoming Weekend.  

“This is the fifth year local Pentwater quilters have donated their time, talents and inspiration to support our mission of providing scholarships to Pentwater High School graduates for their post-high school educational plans,” said Joann Murphy of the PWC.  

Pentwater Fireworks” is on display in rotating Pentwater business storefronts this summer, and raffle tickets are being sold during Thursday night band concerts at the Village Green. Tickets cost $10 for three or $5 for one and are available from PWC members or can be purchased at the event. The drawing will be at 4 p.m.

The Wine & Art Event and the quilt raffle provide the money the PWC uses for scholarship awards. The PWC awarded six graduates scholarship money last June. During 2020 when PWC could not hold the event due to COVID-19, three scholarships were awarded nonetheless.

This year’s graduates were Elizabeth Arnounts, Delaney Bryce, Justine Murphy, Grace Powers, Paige Ruggles and Johnathon VanDuinen.

PWC depends upon the success of the Wine & Art event to fund its support of post high school education, college or trade. In the past 54 years, since the scholarship’s inception in 1967, the PWC has awarded 189 graduates with scholarships. 

The PWC was founded 122 years ago and has participated in civic, local, county, state and federal projects and programs. 

Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door and are available at Port View, Jilly’s Gallery and Story Book Village.
