Holy Cross tasting-porchOn August 23, 2014, Dame Sally Davidson is hosting a fantastic event at the Winery at the Holy Cross Abbey at 3011 East US HWY 50. in Canon City. Sally will host a VIP Wine and Cheese tasting from 1pm-3pm to promote the Colorado chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier. LDEI CO members and their friends and family are welcome and will enjoy the winery’s award winning wines, paired with artisan breads and cheeses and seasonal fruit. The $25 fee will go directly to our scholarship fund and initiatives, and we anticipate this will be a terrific time and fundraiser!

IMG_1423Members are encouraged to head over as a group to take a two-hour historic train ride, starting at 3:30pm through the Royal Gorge region. Sally will arrange for tickets for those members of our Chapter who would like to continue with the festivities and is also looking at securing a block of rooms for members who would like to spend the night. We can take an optional trip to Salida the following morning for breakfast, and enjoy the local art and culture. It is a busy time of year. Let Sally know soon if you would like to attend this event, and take the train and/or stay the night! Don’t forget that The Winery at the Holy Cross Abbey has a yearly harvest festival at the end of September!
