Wine-tasting to benefit Hennepin-Lake neighborhoods is June 9

Hennepin Lake Liquors, 1200 W. Lake St., hosts its 22nd annual charity winetasting Wednesday, June 9 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in a tent in the Campiello’s parking lot, 1320 W. Lake St. Food will be provided by the restaurant and wine by Hennepin Lake Liquor.

All proceeds go to participating neighborhood groups, including the Calhoun Area Residents Action Group (CARAG), Lowry Hill East Neighborhood Association (LHENA), East Calhoun Community Organization (ECCO), East Isles Resident Association (EIRA) and Kenwood Isles Area Association (KIAA.)

“After doing business in the community for a number of years, we decided to give something back,” said Phil Colich, owner of Hennepin Lake Liquors for 29 years.

Colich said the event is Minnesota’s longest-running charitable wine-tasting.

Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Each participating neighborhood sells tickets as a fund-raiser, but tickets can also be purchased at Hennepin Lake liquor. Revenue from tickets sold at the store will be split among the participating neighborhoods.
