The Bloomington Country Club hosts the 22nd Annual Grape Soiree, which raises funds for Easter Seals Central Illinois.  It's Saturday, Sept. 24 beginning at 5:30 PM and features art, wine and jazz.

  • The Grape Soiree pairs wines with a lavish meal, then features an art auction, with works by many regional artists.
  • The event also has artwork that was created by the children who are directly helped by Easter Seals and the money that's raised annual through the Grape Soiree.  Creating the art helps the children with their therapy.
  • Local jazz performer Kevin Hart and his quartet will provide entertainment for the Grape Soiree.
  • Organizers hope to raise 80 to 90 thousand dollars, which provides therapy for local children.
  • Tickets are available at 309-663-8275.
