The 12th annual "Grape Escape," Summit County's finest wine and food-tasting extravaganza, will be held from 6-9 p.m., Thursday, April 26, at Portage Country Club, 240 North Portage Path Road, Akron.
The event, sponsored by the Akron General Foundation, features more than 100 different wines from around the world, signature food items prepared by prominent area chefs, a silent auction and musical entertainment. A raffle held that evening promises a trip for two to the picturesque Napa Valley. Only 500 tickets, at $25 each, will be sold for this once-in-a-lifetime vacation. Second prize is an Apple iPad2, the hottest electronic item on the market now. The winner need not be present for this drawing.
Tickets for Grape Escape are $75 each, with all proceeds benefiting the McDowell Cancer Center at Akron General Medical Center. Proceeds last year were used to offset the cost of omicell medication units used in the outpatient Cancer Treatment Center at Akron General.
For an invitation or additional information on Grape Escape, please call the Akron General Foundation, 330.344.6888. You may also purchase tickets online at www.akrongeneral.org/grapeescape.
