The first Wine & Art Fest was held in 2006 at the Sacred Heart Church Hall and due to the large participation it was moved to the Wilson County Show barn on HWY 97 in Floresville. It was a huge success raising over $25,000.00 in funds. The guests were treated to an excellent dinner and appetizers including a variety of cheeses. A wonderful selection of wine and desserts topped off the night. The awesome music by “Small Town Habit” entertained us featuring local talents Charlie Franklin and his wife Crystal. One of the highlights for me was a demonstration by John Karger of Last Chance Forever bird sanctuary. He and his assistant Kelley brought a Lanner Falcon from Africa and a Barn Owl that had been orphaned at birth. Our dear friends Bruce and Betty Dueley donated art and photography which brought in several hundred dollars in the live auction. The Dueley’s joined us at the ranch for Karaoke after the event which made the night even more fun!!!!!
