Saturday, May 6th 6:00 pm, ushers in the main event, the 8th Annual “The Days of Wine and Rotary”. Taste approximately 40 wines craft beers and sample signature entrees and desserts from the area’s top restaurants and caterers, all while experiencing the region’s only fine wine auction. Our 8th Annual Days of Wine and Rotary Event will feature both domestic and foreign wines, gourmet foods, and a live and silent auction.

We were so blown away with the turnout and experience from last year that our goal in our eighth year is to build on the successes of the previous years while at the same time striving to keep the event fresh with some new ideas and fun twists that will keep this event one of the most anticipated and attended events of the year.

This year’s event offers a new freshness and unique twists that will ensure the event remains one of the most anticipated and best attended events of the year. One of the most notable additions is a $5,000 Travel Voucher Raffle.  The winning ticket will be drawn during the May 6 event. Additionally, commemorative wine glasses will be etched with the Rotary logo and distributed as event souvenirs.

Event proceeds will benefit the following charities:

The proceeds from the live and silent auctions go to:

  • KidsTLC
  • Deb’s House – an orphanage in Romania
  • The Olathe Public Schools Foundation’s Fund-a-Need Program
  • Woodland Charities
  • Evergreen Living
  • Inclusions Connection
  • The Olathe Noon Rotary Foundation.
