Posted on 09/20/2022 by Village of Oswego, Illinois
The Village of Oswego has put a philanthropic spin on its newest event, Wine OFF the Fox, a benefit concert at Venue 1012, on Saturday, Oct. 22. In addition to wine tasting, two girl bands will perform at the inaugural event.
With October recognized as breast cancer awareness month, Wine OFF the Fox was planned to help support local and national breast cancer organizations. Rush Copley/Waterford Place Cancer Resource Center, Edward Foundation Breast Program Fund and the American Cancer Society will receive 10% of the ticket proceeds. A silent auction, both online and onsite, will help raise additional funds for the organizations.
“Wine OFF the Fox highlights breast cancer awareness, raises funds, and allows our community to enjoy live entertainment and a wine tasting,” Village President Troy Parlier said. “Join us at Venue 1012 to support this worthy cause.”
Wine OFF the Fox opens with a VIP reception from 1 to 2 p.m. featuring an exclusive wine tasting and a female soloist before the event is open to all ticket holders at 2 p.m. More than 15 selections from regional wineries, seasonal craft beer from Oswego Brewing Co., a signature cocktail and non-alcoholic options will be available until 7 p.m. A variety of local food options will also be offered.
Jersey Girls, a popular band known for their high energy harmonies on original and cover music, will headline the event. Their repertoire includes contemporary hits and favorites from Whitney Houston, Beyoncé, Aretha Franklin, Queen, ABBA, Bee Gees and the Four Seasons. Decked out in sequins and armed with powerful voices, this Chicago trio has performed across the country and was voted favorite girl group of the Midwest. Serendipity, an all-girl band from the Chicago suburbs, will open the event with a dynamic variety of ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s covers, as well as pop hits.
