ALTO PASS, IL– On April 27, 45 community members attended “Taste of Sweden,” a culinary and wine event benefitting CENET’s local program, Culture in the Community.
The event was held at Hedman Vineyards, operated by Swedish natives, Gerd and Anders Hedman. Each ticket included a 3-course dinner with wine pairings and a welcome drink. Guests were provided with a brief overview of Culture in the Community by CENET Executive Director, Robyn Walker, as well as a menu description by Gerd Hedman. A former Rotary high school exchange student, Amelia Blakely, also shared about her exchange experience in Sweden.
Proceeds from a “Taste of Sweden” will be used to provide scholarships for area students to attend the world-renowned language immersion programs offered by Concordia Language Villages.
Thank you to the community members who supported “Taste of Sweden.” Special thanks to Secutive for sponsoring a portion of the evening, and to Hedman Vineyards for donating the event space.
