The Grand Forks Art Gallery Society’s 24th Annual Wine Tasting was a sell-out as usual

The Grand Forks Art Gallery Society’s 24th Annual Wine Tasting was a sell-out as usual, with 225 people vying for tickets to the prestigious event. Fourteen wineries and two breweries were represented this year, along with regional food and coffee presenters. Harpist Jennifer Fenn performed upstairs of the beautifully decorated gallery, an historical building; a special thank you goes to Bill Fedoriw of Grand Forks, who donated some 50 hours to the gallery creating two vignettes for the stairwells. The event concluded with safe rides home offered by the grad class of 2016.
