Wine Wall: This HEARTS FOR CHILDREN event will feature its  very first WINE WALL. The WINE WALL will consist of various white (Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio) and red wines (Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet) valued anywhere from $20 to $400, but all wines will be concealed in bags. You may purchase a WINE WALL ticket for $20 and pick whatever bag you would like. Upon opening the bag, you will find out exactly how much that bottle of wine is worth!

WHAT CAN YOU DO:

  • The WINE WALL will ONLY be available the evening of 2/10/18, so be sure you purchase tickets to the event, as well as tickets for the wine wall.
  • Donate bottles of wine for the event valued over $20 (a donation form will need to be completed).
  • For your convenience, wine can be purchased at Wynlakes Golf & Country Club, Peppertree Steaks & Wines or Ted the Wine Guy, and all you have to do is say ‘I want this wine to go towards the Rotary Event’. Leave it at that location and someone from Rotary will pick it up.
  • All other donations will need to be delivered to Susanne Trest, Wynlakes Golf & Country Club, 7900 Wynlakes Boulevard OR you can call her at 334-391-4405 and she will pick it up.

Our Gala Charities:

Brantwood Children’s Home was founded in 1917 by the Federation of Women’s Club to care for children whose parents were incarcerated. Since that time, Brantwood has evolved into so much more. Today, Brantwood has become a home for abused and neglected children in Montgomery and the surrounding area that need one. We foster boys and girls ages 10-20 years old that have not gotten a fair start to life, through no actions of their own, and provide them with the same things that any parent would provide their own children. The basic necessities of food, clothing, and shelter are just the beginning to what we would like to offer the children in our care. Not only do we provide our children with a place to live, we try to instill a sense of normalcy in their lives; a normalcy they have rarely had demonstrated to them before. Brantwood becomes a surrogate family for those entering; as our children are encouraged to participate in chores, extra-curricular activities, and family meals. Our goal is simple- to provide a place for the heart to heal and important relationships to blossom.

Our mission is exclusively non-profit and is to operate in the best interest of the community while serving dependent, neglected and/or abused children by providing for and supervising their education, health, and social adjustments into the community.

Lunches for Learning exists to break the cycle of poverty in rural Honduras by providing a nutritious lunch to elementary school children at their school every day; thereby allowing these children the opportunity to remain in school so they can complete their education and enter the workforce as literate individuals.

Have you ever considered what it would be like if you had to walk for an hour each morning across a rugged mountain road just to attend school for the day, only to be faced with having to walk another hour at the end of the school day to get home? Or what if you had to send your kids to school on an empty stomach each morning because you had no food? For the kids of rural Honduras, this is their reality every day. Honduras is among the poorest nations in the world with much of the population living below the poverty level, earning less than $2 per day. However, statistics show that a child who earns at least a sixth grade education has hope for breaking the cycle of poverty because he or she will learn basic reading, writing and math skills that open future doors. This is the foundation of the Lunches for Learning mission.
