This past Saturday evening, the Mission Helpers of the Sacred Heart launched the first annual “Fruit of D’Vine” wine tasting event at Loyola Blakefield High School in Towson. Over 300 people, many of them new friends of the Mission Helpers, turned out to sample over 30 different varieties of wine spread over 17 tables and to select from the delectable food offerings of over a dozen local restaurants and food specialty shops.
Live and silent auctions contributed to making this a very successful event in support of the Mission Helpers’ ministries. Auction items included a Caribbean vacation cruise, a week’s stay on St. Martin, a diamond necklace, tickets to a Broadway play, a well-stocked golf accessory bag and many other enticing things.
Guests enjoyed mingling, getting to know the Mission Helper Sisters and staff and enjoying a night of fine wine and food in support of the varied ministries of the Mission Helpers in the United States and Venezuela.
