Raise a glass to Gilda's Club!
2014 Village of East Davenport Wine Walk

Village of East Davenport, IA – August 16, 2014 3-6 p.m.

5th annual Village of East Davenport Wine Walk. Join us for this premier wine tasting event throughout the East Village and help support our Gilda's Club Quad Cities. Stop by one of the outside booths along 11th St., get a wristband with your $10 donation, pick up a map of over 20 participating stores all while listening to live music and let the sampling begin!

Every store has a different wine, most all wine are from local Iowa/Illinois wineries. The back parking lot of Camp McClelland Cellars/ Revolution in the Village (11th and Jersey Ridge Rd) will have reps from wineries serving wines that are not being served on the Wine Walk. Also in that lot will be live music and food being grilled. 11th St. from Jersey Ridge to Mound St. will have music in the street and safe walking to participating stores.

GO GREEN! Although sample cups are provided, we encourage participants to bring their own glass/cup. Gilda's Club also will have commemorative hand painted wine glasses for sale with proceeds going to Gilda's Club.

All proceeds from wristband sales will be given to Gilda's Club Quad Cities! Last year, attendance was over 1,000 participants enjoying this event raising over $10,000 for Gilda's Club here in Davenport! This event has quickly become a favorite for those enjoy wine as well as the charm of the East Village of Davenport!

Join us in the Village for a great cause and lots of fun! It's a party!!
