Wine will pour at 13th annual Wine Tasting and Silent Auction


MIO –– The 13th annual Wine Tasting and Silent Auction will take place Saturday, Nov. 4, and will offer live music, hors d'oeuvres, wine sampling, silent auctions and raffles.

The event is hosted each year by the Oscoda County Chamber of Commerce. Organizer Ann Galbraith said tickets are $34 per couple or $18 each. She said she is most looking forward to the baskets that will be raffled off.

“We do a bucket auction where we sell tickets and you put your tickets in a bucket to win a basket,” she said. “We always have a wonderful array of baskets, anywhere from a cookbook basket to a picnic basket, which includes a grill, cooler and grill tools.”

Galbraith said whether you buy one ticket or 100 tickets, attendees will have as much of a chance of winning a basket as anyone else.

New to the event this year will be live music performed by Steven Sidebottom, who is scheduled to play piano throughout the evening.

“Last year was our first time doing it at the Mio Community Center and this year we added live entertainment as well as appetizers in grazing stations such as cheese, dessert and hot appetizer stations,” Galbraith said.

Tickets are available for purchase at Mercantile Bank in Fairview, Luzerne Hardware, State Wide Real Estate of Mio, the AuSable River Restaurant in Mio and the chamber of commerce in Mio.

“It’s always a lot of fun,” she said. “The AuSable River Restaurant provides the appetizers for it and it’s always a good time. I suggest getting tickets early because they seem to be going pretty quickly.”

The event will take place at the Mio Community Center, located at 305 E. Ninth St. in Mio. The event is scheduled to run from 6:30-9:30 p.m. For more information, call the chamber of commerce at 989-826-3331.
