MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX – Serenity Rose Farm will host the Annual Wine Tasting fundraiser benefitting the clients of Bridgewood Farms on Saturday, September 17, 2022, from 6:00pm – 9:00pm, located at 12244 Serenity Rose Drive in Conroe. The annual event, “Around the World in 180 Minutes,” will be an evening of wine tasting along with live and silent auctions. The public is encouraged to be part of the wine tasting by purchasing a passport for entry into the event and celebrate the organization that has served the community of special needs adults for 55 years.
Each participant will receive a wine glass with a ceramic wine charm handmade by the clients and a passport. Attendees will travel through fourteen regions of the world getting their passport stamped while tasting wines of that region. Volunteer servers will share information on their specific regional wines and offer information to assist participants.
Passports for entry to the event are available online at www.BridgewoodFarms.org for $100.

Please call me at the office Monday through Friday if you have an item I can arrange to pick up for our event at (936) 856-6460. The community has welcomed us for 55 years and we want to have a memorable party!”
