The Tunkhannock Business and Professional Women (BPW) for Wine Down 2013 will be held on Thursday, May 2 at the historic Dietrich Theater in downtown Tunkhannock.
This year’s movie will be The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2011), which follows a group of British retirees who decide to retire in less expensive and more exotic India starring Judi Dench, Bill Nighy and Maggie Smith. In addition to a movie, there will be wine, finger foods, desserts and door prizes.
Tickets are available in advance from BPW members or at the door at a cost of $25 per person. Doors open at 6:15 p.m.; the movie starts at 7:30 p.m.
For more information, contact chairperson Linda Sokoloski at 574-9037 or by e-mail at LCSPS3@PTD.NETPTD.NET.
This event is one of the major fund-raising events undertaken annually by Tunkhannock BPW, a chapter of BPW PA, an organization dedicated to promoting full participation, equity and economic self-sufficiency for America’s working women.
In recognition of the mission of the organization to achieve equity for all women in the workplace through advocacy, education and information, proceeds from Wine Down 2013 will benefit the Fran Colemen Memorial Scholarship for Tunkhannock Area High School seniors, the Girl Scout Scholarship fund and non-profit organizations within the community that provide support to women and children.
The Tunkhannock BPW chapter currently meets on the second Monday of each month at the Tunkhannock Loyal Order of the Moose Lodge 1276. For more information, contact the chapter president Terri Detrick at 499-7194.
