Wine tasting raises money for Boys & Girls Club

STEVENS POINT (WAOW) - Hundreds of people flocked to a wine and cheese event in Portage County Friday night for a good cause.

The Boys & Girls Club of Portage County held the event. More than 800 people attended. The event boasted more than 110 types of wine, three breweries and a special bourbon tasting. Organizers say the tasting is a great way to keep the club running.

"It actually creates 10 percent of our annual income for the Boys & Girls Club," said Brittany Melby, Boys & Girls Club of Portage County director of development and marketing. "Without this support, we wouldn't be running the way we are today."

The event is in its 10th year.
