“We are taking all the popular and exciting aspects that have drawn attendees over the years to this highly anticipated signature event, plus we added a few more, and we are offering them in a quarantine-safe, fun and friendly way,” said Laura Kirchhoff, executive director for Circle of Hope. “Dinner, wine, beer, an on-line auction, live entertainment, a dinner and wine-maker experience, all hosted live that evening via your computer by community leader and Circle of Hope board member, Melanie Meyer. It’s the next best thing to being there in person!”
