Tis the season for Christmas cheer

You’ve read in my column many times my mention of “silent auction items” as the way many charities raise much-needed operating funds, I thought it would be fun for you to see an actual “winning item” in progress. At the Boots and Bling fundraiser for the YMCA held in November, the name of the item auctioned was “Christmas Wine Tasting” and it featured Island News columnist Terry Sweeney as the host of a wine tasting party. The highest bidder was Sonya Reiselt, and this past weekend, a group of long time girlfriends shared laughs, fun and wonderful wine at the lovely home of Liz Murdaugh. And the YMCA got the benefits!  Here are some pics for you:
