Wine Off the Fox mixes wine and live music on September 1 and 2
Posted on 08/15/2023 by Village of Oswego, Illinois
The Village of Oswego’s Wine Off the Fox presented by TR Miller Heating, Cooling and Plumbing returns on September 1 and 2 at Venue 1012. This is the second year for the event, which features wine tasting, performances by three girl bands and testimonials from breast cancer survivors.
Wine Off the Fox was planned to help promote breast cancer awareness. A portion of each ticket sold will support local and national breast cancer organizations, Rush Copley/Waterford Place Cancer Resource Center, Edward Foundation Breast Program Fund and the American Cancer Society. A silent auction will help raise additional funds for the organizations.
“Not only does Wine Off the Fox bring our community together to enjoy wine tasting and live music, it helps raise awareness and funds for breast cancer,” Village President Ryan Kauffman said. “We’ve added a second day since last year’s event was so popular.”
TR Miller Plumbing, Cooling and Heating serves as the event’s presenting sponsor.
Wine Off the Fox takes place on September 1 from 5 to 8:30 p.m. and September 2 from 2 to 7:30 p.m. at Venue 1012. More than 20 wine varieties from local, regional and international wineries, as well as craft beer, will be available. Wine selections include August Hill Winery’s sweet crisp Caramel Apple, Village Vintner’s juicy Blood Orange Sangria, Miradouro da Vinha Rosé from Portugal and France’s Soir de Paris Blanc de Blancs. A variety of local food trucks will be onsite. Attendees are also welcome to bring their own picnic, though no outside beverages are permitted.
The entertainment lineup features The PriSSillas on September 1, along with Serendipity and headliner The Jersey Girls on September 2.
