Do you like wine? Do you like the world (and especially our little corner of it)? Then you'll love the 30th Annual Wines of the World to benefit Bear Creek Services! And this year it's virtual, which means in Rochester, Minnesota, or not, you can be in the comfort of your own home, bidding, enjoying amazing food, and wine delivered right to you.

Proceeds will go to Bear Creek Services construction of a wheelchair accessible group home for women who have developmental disabilities later in 2021.
