Wine in the Pines Benefits Cerebral Palsy of Colorado
KREX News Room
KEYSTONE, Colo. - The 29th Annual Wine in the Pines was held in Keystone this weekend.
This star-studded fundraiser benefits Cerebral Palsy of Colorado and features about 300 wines from around the world.
The event also showcases some of Keystone's top eateries, not to mention a dessert buffet and chocolate fondue fountains.
However, all of the glamor and work that goes into making this weekend such a success isn't just for fun. It's for the organization that began 66 years ago.
In addition, held every year at the Keystone Convention Center, the fundraiser also benefits the mountain town's local economy.
"Keystone is very proud to have hosted all 29 years of the Wine in the Pines, benefiting Cerebral Palsy of Colorado. What's great about this event, is that we entertain guests all the way from the Front Range to the Western Slope, including Grand Junction," said Steve Corneillier, the general manager of golf and recreation for Keystone Resorts.
"The food, the wine, everything was amazing. Especially the chocolate fountain. I really enjoyed that," said Megan Katzman, an attendee.
This year's theme was Oscar Night and featured live and silent auctions to help boost the organization's funds.
All proceeds go to CP of Colorado, who also has a campus in Denver, providing outreach and education to children and adults with cerebral palsy.
