The Alton Memorial Hospital White Cross Auxiliary will hold its annual “Girls on Grapes, Boys on Brew” fund-raiser from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8, at the Loading Dock, 400 Front St. in Grafton, Ill.
Enjoy beautiful views of the Mississippi River while sampling delicious foods, as well as wine and beer tasting, from more than 25 area restaurants and wineries. A few new vendors this year include Bakers and Hale, Brown Bag Bistro, Blue Stem Vodka, DeCaro’s, and Stumpy’s Spirits.
The Auxiliary supports various other hospital projects, including education, hospital equipment, and help for people who can’t afford their prescriptions. Funds from this year’s event will go toward the purchase of a car transfer simulator for joint patients.
Tickets for the event are $30 in advance and are available online at Brown Paper Tickets, then type in “GOG BOB” (with a space in the middle) or “The Loading Dock” in the “Find an Event” window.
