Sun singer hosts Wine Gala to support Orpheum Children's Museum

The seventh annual Sun Singer Gala Wine Tasting will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 20th, from 5 to 8:30 p.m. at the iHotel and Conference Center in Champaign. The gala is a wonderful opportunity for wine, beer and spirit connoisseurs to sample over 200 selections of wines, beers and spirits from all over the world. It is also an opportunity to witness an important part of any organization — giving back to the community.
The Gala is hosted by the Sun Singer Wine & Spirit, located on 1115 W. Windsor Rd. in Champaign, and is benefiting the Orpheum Children’s Science Museum, located on 346 N. Neil St. in Champaign. It is the second year that Sun Singer and the Orpheum Children’s Science Museum have collaborated. The Orpheum Children’s Science Museum is a small not-for-profit and an exceptionally wonderful place for children, or sometimes even adults who are still young at heart, to be inspired and educated by engaging with science and the arts.

In addition to the food, a silent auction will also be featured in the Gala. Items include rare bottles of wine, wine accessories, unique items from local businesses and museum packages, such as an event rental in the Orpheum Theatre (a beautiful theatre built in 1914) and a Night at the Museum birthday package.

The tickets are $20, and all of the proceeds of the tickets will go toward benefiting the Museum. The tickets are available for purchase at the Museum, at the Sun Singer, on the Museum’s website and at the door of the iHotel and Conference Center.
