BRING ON THE WINE CELLAR
We’ll be auctioning off a complete 100-bottle cellar of wine on Saturday, February 25 at the Winter Toast. But in order to make it happen, we need everyone to do his or her part. Parishioners, school parents, and any interested party over 21, we need your wine donations!
Our goal is to collect 100 or more bottles to be auctioned off as a complete cellar. If you don’t have a bottle handy and are interested in shopping locally, say no more! You can stop by LUSH at 2232 N. Roscoe. The folks at LUSH will be glad to help you pick out something fabulous within your budget. And if you shop at LUSH, you can leave your bottle right at the store. What’s more, for every 10 bottles that are collected at LUSH, they will donate one of their personal favorites. Please remember to tell the sales clerk you are from Queen of Angels.
Please consider helping our school. If you have questions or need to arrange for a different drop off/pick up spot, please contact Mary Pat Schmidt at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 773-213-3096. Thanks for your help!
