Fundraiser to feature variety of wines

JOPLIN, Mo. — A fundraiser for a senior homebound meal program will feature a large variety of wines to sample.

Grapes & Grog will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday at Joplin ElkÕs Lodge, located at 1802 W. 26th. It will feature a selection of wines provided by Macadoodles. The event will be held this Saturday, and also include a barbecue dinner, silent auction and concert featuring Duke Mason.

Items up for auction include a side of beef valued at $1,100, a gas grill, bird hunting package, hotel and gaming accommodations for Indigo Sky Casino, Kansas City Royals tickets, sports memorabilia and more. More than 120 items have been donated for the auction.

The event will help raise funds for the Area Agency on Aging Region X and its meal delivery service for homebound seniors in Jasper, Newton, Barton and McDonald counties. State funding for the program has been cut because of Congressional disagreements.

Funds will also benefit other agency services, such as Medicare and benefits counseling, family caregiver and ombudsman services and operation of area senior centers.

Tickets: $20. Discount rates for tables available. Details: 417-781-7562.
