Have you registered for Wine & Punchlines benefit?

We’ve all missed socializing during the pandemic-defined “new normal.” But we’ve learned there are ways to have fun with online events. The Southeastern Credit Union Foundation has planned a unique, virtual event, “Wine & Punchlines with Laurie Forster, the Stand-up Sommelier,” sponsored by OM Financial Group, on Sept. 10 at 6:30 p.m. ET. All proceeds benefit the great works of the SECUF.

TV personality, award-winning sommelier and comedian Laurie Forster delivers a fun and interactive virtual tasting where wine meets punchline. Using her down to earth approach to “wine education,” Forster peels back the labels of a few of her favorite wines while she exposes some of the deep secrets of the wine industry and why she thinks it’s so darn funny!

Forster leaves no stone unturned when it comes to talking about wine and why we like it. Maybe you love the full body of a Malbec or the crisp acidity of a Pinot Grigio. Who knows? Who cares? But by the end of this tasting, three things are certain. You are confident about what you like, exhausted from laughing and completely relaxed.

The registration deadline to have wine shipped directly to your door has passed but you can still purchase a ticket to attend the virtual event. Once your registration is complete, you’ll receive an email listing the featured wine selections that you can then purchase prior to the event.

Once registered, you will get information on how to log in and about the wines to have on hand so you can taste (and laugh) along with Laurie and your friends and family!

The evening will also include door prizes provided by the sponsor, OM Financial.
