DeKALB – Tickets are on sale for the Ellwood House Museum’s annual fall fundraiser, Wine on the Terrace. The outdoor event will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 18.
The Ellwood House terraces and gardens offer a picturesque setting for an evening of fine wine, unique appetizers, desserts and live music. There will even be a few craft brews available this year.
The beverage selections will be made by staff of the Wine and Spirits department at Hy-Vee, with Hy-Vee Catering providing tasty appetizers and desserts. Live music will be provided by classical guitarist, Quentin Dover. The evening will also feature a raffle of stylish offerings and gift certificates.
Tickets cost $50 and should be purchased in advance online at ellwoodhouse.org, in-person in the Ellwood House Museum Visitor Center, or in-person in the Sycamore Hy-Vee Wine and Spirits Department.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Visitor Center will not be used for bad weather backup. In case of inclement weather or new COVID mandates, the event may be rescheduled. Refunds will be available to ticket holders. Continue to check ellwoodhouse.org for updates.
Appetizers will be available in a manner of different ways: Hy-Vee staff will serve appetizers on trays, provide a boxed option for meats and cheeses, and have several self-serve stations of individual foods in their own cups. Tables and chairs will be spread out on the grounds for everyone’s comfort. The event is hosted outdoors on the terraces and walkways around the mansion.
