NOTE: Due to weather, the 2015 event was rescheduled for March 27, 2015.
The Next Generation Heritage Foundation of Franklin & Williamson County has announced that tickets are now on sale for their 8th annual Three Blind Vines fundraiser supporting Franklin’s “Old, Old Jail,” soon to be better known as The Big House for Historic Preservation.
The event takes place on Friday, February 20 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in Liberty Hall at The Factory in Franklin. This year’s event décor and ambiance will hearken back to the Art Deco Era, inspired by the architecture of the circa 1941 Old, Old Jail building. Suggested dress is cocktail attire, and admission includes live entertainment, food from favorite local restaurants and the wine, of course.
Back by popular demand, Evan Farmer will host the evening’s festivities, including the announcement everyone will be waiting for by night’s end – the two Grand Prize winners of the blind wine tasting, both of whom will go home with a “winner’s vault” of wine.
Tickets may be purchased in advance on their website at www.threeblindvines.com for $45. They will be $50 at the door. VIP tickets are available for $100 and include plush accommodations overlooking the tasting floor, additional food selections and a private bar area.
“Next Gen” invites the community to interact with their 3BV social media team through Facebook at www.facebook.com/nextgenhf, and on Twitter and Instagram by following the hashtag #3BV.
