Benefitting the Power of Pink, Rutherford County's premier fundraising program for breast cancer detection and treatment. Join us this year Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016 for another year of great fun!
Last year...more than 650 people enjoyed the 2015 Wine Around the Square, strolling the Square, talking with friends and listening to music while enjoying wine tastings, premium liquors and beers, and food samples from area restaurants. Special thanks to all of the guests, vendors, in-kind media sponsors and volunteers who gave so much to make last year's event possible---please plan to join us again this year!
Now, hundreds of underinsured and uninsured Rutherford County women will have access all year long to diagnostic breast treatment, mammogram screenings and education, and lives will be saved by early detection.
The Power of Pink program was begun 12 years ago to provide financial support for the Saint Thomas Health/Susan G. Komen/Power of Pink “Our Mission in Motion” mobile mammography coach, to provide mammograms for indigent women in Rutherford County at the Center for Breast Health, and for breast cancer education and information.
New this year: Beer Garden, outdoor “living room” seating, a record 32 downtown venues to visit, after-party at The Big Bang Dueling Piano Bar
Fourth Annual Wine Around the Square/Saint Thomas Rutherford Foundation
Saturday, Sept. 19, at 6 p.m. in historic downtown Murfreesboro
Tickets at winearoundthesquare.org
During the last fiscal year, the Power of Pink and Wine Around the Square made possible 482 mammograms for Rutherford County women who are uninsured, underinsured or indigent. Six people were diagnosed with breast cancer last year through the Power of Pink program.
Four new downtown Murfreesboro venues will host a brand new addition---a Beer Garden---to the fourth annual Wine Around the Square (WATS) Saturday, Sept. 19. SHAVE Barber Lounge, Eischeid Law Office, REGAL TITLE, and Personal Loan and Investment Company will serve as our “tap rooms,” according to 2015 Logistics Coordinator Dave Davis. Main Event tickets are $60 per person for the event and are available for purchase online at winearoundthesquare.org.
Twelve craft beers will be served, thanks to event sponsor Charlie Patel and Stones River Total Beverages, who every year arranges for all of the wine, premium liquors and beers to be donated for the event. The Beer Garden will also have corn hole games and picnic tables amid festival lighting.
“Every year we add something new,” said Anne Davis, Director of the Saint Thomas Rutherford Foundation. “This year, we are adding a lot of new elements, including outdoor seating near the Courthouse with lounging sofas, more food than ever from many more food vendors, and a record 32 downtown shops and offices that will be open for wine-tasting, lemonade, bottled water and shopping. We want to provide a great value and a lot of fun for the hundreds of people we are planning for this year.”
The planning for the VIP party for the 2015 Wine Around the Square, sponsored by the Saint Thomas Rutherford Foundation, is in full force!
This year the party is at the Big Bang Dueling Piano Bar on the historic downtown Square in Murfreesboro...a really fun venue...and music will be provided by Tim James and the James Brothers.
Tim James is a Grammy award-winning songwriter, and he will be performing many familiar songs currently on the radio, as well as his own music. He'll be joined by his two brothers, who are also musicians, in a very rare family appearance. They only play together once or twice a year these days, Tim tells us.
Great wine, great food, great fellowship! The party is once again being led by Deb Thompson and Roy Snipes (second and third from left), the VIP Co-Chairs, along with great support from WATS leaders Patty Marschel (also the event's Founder, far left), Rita Ash and Caroline Lampley, Co-Chairs.
What a team! Tickets for the VIP party are $250 each at winearoundthesquare.org and also include the Main Event and the After-Party!
It's going to be a great night for a great cause! Come join us Saturday, Sept. 19 and help raise money to provide Rutherford County women full access to diagnostic mammograms.
