HOPEWELL — The Ki­wa­nis Club of Hopewell will hold its eighth an­nual Wine Tast­ing Fes­ti­val on Satur­day, Nov. 17 at the His­toric Bea­con Theatre in down­town Hopewell. This event con­tin­ues to grow each year, and this year the Ki­wa­nis Club is pleased to an­nounce that pop­u­lar lo­cal band Mag­no­lia will re­turn and per­form a spe­cial con­cert for fes­ti­val pa­trons on the Bea­con Theatre stage from 2-4 p.m. Ad­mis­sion to the con­cert is in­cluded in the price of the Wine Fes­ti­val ticket.

Tick­ets to this year’s fes­ti­val and con­cert are now on sale for $25 in ad­vance and can be pur­chased from any Ki­wa­nis mem­ber, the Ford Agency, Ver­gara’s Clean­ers, the Bea­con Theatre (a sur­charge will be added) or on­line at www. hopewell­wine­tast­ing.com. Tick­ets pur­chased at the door the day of the event will be $30.

If a busi­ness pur­chases 10 or more tick­ets, Ki­wa­nis will rec­og­nize them as a Ki­wa­nis Club of Hopewell Cor­po­rate Spon­sor, and will in­clude the busi­ness in their ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paign, on Face­book and on its spon­sor­ship dis­play ban­ner at the event. For cor­po­rate spon­sor­ship pric­ing and in­cen­tives, con­tact any mem­ber of the Ki­wa­nis Club or call 804-571-1711 for de­tails.

The 2018 Hopewell Ki­wa­nis Club Wine Com­mit­tee con­sists of Jim Sla­gle, Rich Stron­gin, Wil­fred Fred­er­ick­sen, Tonda Wil­liamson, and Jan Yon­ning.

For 2018, the Ki­wa­nis Club has in­creased the num­ber of winer­ies, and this year seven winer­ies will be par­tic­i­pat­ing in the fes­ti­val: Byrd Cel­lars Vine­yard and Win­ery, Cas­tle Glenn Es­tates Farm and Win­ery, Cooper Vine­yard, Ha­ley’s Honey Mead­ery, James River Cel­lars, Mat­taponi Win­ery and Skip­pers Creek Vine­yard. All are back due to pop­u­lar de­mand and re­quests from pa­trons. Light snacks will be pro­vided by Hopewell Quick Lunch.

The eighth an­nual Wine-Tast­ing Fes­ti­val is the Ki­wa­nis Club's ma­jor com­mu­nity fundrais­ing event and sup­ports youth ser­vice pro­grams in the area by pro­vid­ing schol­ar­ships for grad­u­at­ing high school se­niors at both Hopewell and Prince Ge­orge high schools, sup­port of the Ki­wa­nis Ter­rific Kids Pro­gram at all three Hopewell ele­men­tary schools, sup­port for the Carter G. Wood­son Mid­dle School “PAWS” store, spon­sor­ship of Key Clubs at Hopewell High School and Prince Ge­orge High School, and sup­port of the Hopewell Pub­lic Schools Read­ing and Lit­er­acy Pro­gram.

Dur­ing the first three weeks of ticket sales over 60% of avail­able tick­ets have been sold. This is likely to be sold out. The Ki­wa­nis Club highly rec­om­mends that pa­trons pur­chase tick­ets early due to the pop­u­lar­ity of this event and the re­turn per­for­mance of Mag­no­lia in­cluded in the price of ad­mis­sion.
