Canopy Children’s Solutions’ 2018 Wine Tasting & Silent Auction was held Saturday, April 21, at the home of Kerk and Elizabeth Mehrle in the Eastover Subdivision of Jackson. As a ‘thank you’ for hosting the event, the couple was presented with a watercolor painting of the family home by Mark Millet, which was on display.
The evening opened with a professional cooking demonstration of Pickled Shrimp, curated by Paul Adair, chef and co-owner of The Gathering restaurant in Livingston. The VIP hour also offered artisan libations from Krutz Family Cellars of Santa Rosa, California.
The main event boasted live music from Sessions Trio and samplings from top area restaurants including The Pig & Pint, Saltine’s, Broad Street, La Brioche, Rooster’s, Soul Shine Pizza Factory and Magnolia Catering. The featured wine offerings were provided by Calistoga Wine & Spirits, Wine & Spirits Discount Center in The Quarter, McDade’s Wine & Spirits, Madison Cellars, Colony Wine Market and Joe T’s Wines & Spirits. Approximately 200 people participated in the event.
Proceeds from the Wine Tasting will benefit Canopy’s statewide programs serving the emotional, behavioral, educational and social needs of more than 5,000 Mississippi children.
