Brandy­wine Com­mu­nity Li­brary hosted its an­nual com­mu­nity fundraiser, with a new name, Wine and Stein, on April 14 at the Henry Au­di­to­rium lo­cated on The Lutheran Home at Topton cam­pus.

“For the Wine and Stein event, we sold 116 tick­ets and filled the room with ap­prox­i­mately 135 won­der­ful li­brary sup­port­ers,” said Heather Wicke, Li­brary Di­rec­tor at Brandy­wine Com­mu­nity Li­brary. “Not only is our goal to raise money at this event but we like to show­case lo­cal ven­dors and bring our neigh­bors to­gether for a night of mu­sic, min­gling, ap­pe­tiz­ers, door prizes, raf­fles, wine and for the first time this year, beer.”

Tast­ings were of­fered by Au­len­bach Wines, Pin­na­cle Ridge Win­ery, and Sau­cony Creek Brew­ery. Food spon­sors in­cluded Foodleigh.com, Shady Creek Cakes and Bak­ery, Kym’s Bak­ery Cre­ations, Classy Cakes Cup­cak­ery, Sweet Tem­pered Choco­lates, Cook­ies by Dean, K’Town Pub, Tony’s Ital­ian Restau­rant, Up­town Ex­presso Bar, Valentino’s, and White Palm.

En­ter­tain­ment was pro­vided by Han­nah Vi­o­let. Diana and Johnny Hazel with Orin Strunk warmed up the crowd for Han­nah.

“The money raised at Wine and Stein helps us add more items to our col­lec­tion as well as sup­ports our sum­mer read­ing pro­gram for kids, teens and adults,” said Wicke. “This year our kick off pro­gram on June 13 at 2 p.m. is Rockin’ Rep­tiles with the For­got­ten Friend Rep­tile Sanc­tu­ary. They helped us with our adop­tion of Shel­don, a 25 yearold Greek tor­toise.”
