Director of Marketing for the Overton Hotel, Marcie Truby says, “We are so excited to be partnering with such a terrific organization and giving our customers such a unique way of giving back. ONEHOPE Wines will soon be available in our restaurant and also in our catering spaces for large group functions. So a wedding for example could offer the Chardonnay to their guests, and with every glass sold, be funding research to fight breast cancer. It’s a great way to honor a loved one for a social event, or for our many corporate clients to give back to causes they support.”
As a way to kick off this new program, the Overton Hotel & Conference Center will host a ONEHOPE Wine Dinner on Friday May 2nd. Representatives from the ONEHOPE organization will be there to introduce the wines and begin to spread the word about the ONEHOPE mission.
The Overton along with ONEHOPE will be organizing a raffle during the event to raise money for the Burkhart Center for Autism Education and Research at Texas Tech. Truby says; “One of the wines in the ONEHOPE portfolio raises money for Autism Research, so we thought it was a perfect fit to have guests from the Burkhart Center join us at the event and for our raffle to raise money directly for them.”
Tickets for the event are $75 per person and include a five course meal along with ONEHOPE wine pairings for each course. “We’re proud to be a new partner with ONEHOPE and know that the generous spirit of our Lubbock clients will make this program a huge success here.”
Ticket Information: $75per person; Call 806.776.7012 to reserve.
