Art Gallery at Indoor Biotechnologies, 700 Harris Street (across from WriterHouse)
Tickets: $50 per person
Sponsorship*: Best Seller ($250), Pulitzer ($500), and Nobel ($1,000)

It’s time for Words and Wine, the signature annual fundraiser for WriterHouse, an organization whose mission is to promote the creation and appreciation of literature and to encourage the development of writers at all levels by providing affordable, secure workspace and meeting space, high quality writing instruction, and literary events for the public.

Join us for a sommelier-hosted wine-tasting event that will feature French, Italian and Virginia wines and complimentary hors d’oeuvre pairings. C&O Restaurant sommelier for thirty years, Lady Elaine Futhey will lead the wine tasting. Local music luminary Willie Denton-Edmundson will play jazz guitar. A silent auction of literary and wine-related items will be held to enhance fund-raising efforts.
