Recently, the Rotary Club of Niagara-on-the-Lake hosted the Icewine Cocktail Fundraiser in the lovely home of Dawn Barnes and Pierre Jean Jerome. The event was, again, a huge success raising over $20000 which was shared equally between  Wellspring Niagara and ShelterBox Canada. 
 
Nadja Lepere, President of Niagara-on-the-Lake Rotary, describes the evening as  “a great night supporting two deserving causes”. Guests enjoyed canapés donated by the best restaurants in the area, beer courtesy of a local micro brewery and wines donated by Niagara’s finest wineries. Icewine martinis, always a hit, were available from two specialty bars.
 The night has proven to be a gathering point for friends and an opportunity to make new friends. The Icewine Cocktail Party is now an annual event and on the ‘must attend’ list for many in town. Throughout the year, the local Rotary Club provides great entertainment value at their fundraising events in support of Rotary projects.
