Local sponsors are lining up for the Fort Bend County’s Division of the American Heart Association’s annual Wine and Cheese Event from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., Friday, February 24 at Safari Texas Ranch, 11627 FM 1464.
Host Sponsor is Safari Texas Ranch. Underwriting and selecting the wines featured that evening are the 2012 Wine Sponsors Jan and Lee Leaman, Alice and Martin Weir and Karen and Richard McCarter.
“The event is an opportunity for Fort Bend County citizens to support the American Heart Association in its efforts to cure heart disease and stroke in our lifetime,” explains Karen McCarter, president of the board of directors. Heart disease is still the number one killer of men and women in the United States.
A popular Fort Bend County tradition, the event features a variety of special items in the live and silent auctions. Among the live auction items is an electric guitar autographed by legendary Rock ‘n Roll band ZZ Top.
Tickets are $30 and are available at the door. Tickets may be pre-purchased for $25 from any board member. Sponsorships at several levels are welcome and for more information contact Karen McCarter (281) 341-5078.
