CRYSTAL LAKE – The League of Women Voters will host the Midwinter Wine Event at 3 p.m. Saturday at 1776 Restaurant, 397 W. Virginia St.

Admission is $25 a person.

Wine expert Andy Andresky will teach the finer points of tasting and rating wine. It’s for amateur and expert wine enthusiasts.

The League of Women Voters of McHenry County is a nonpartisan political organization, dedicated to making democracy work through voter education, issue advocacy and citizen participation.

Last fall, the league sponsored three candidates forums for legislative districts and the County Board, and registered 305 new voters in McHenry County.

It also conducted mock elections for students at three area high schools.

The league will provide and distribute 1,000 school-supply boxes at the Childrens’ Health and Safety Fair Coalition in August.

Proceeds from the wine event will benefit League of Women Voters work. The restaurant has offered to make a donation to the league based on people who stay for dinner after the event.

To register, call Judi at 815-344-2906 or email at szilak@aol.com.
