Olathe businessmen and women gathered at Ball Event Center last weekend, May 6th, for the 8th Annual Olathe Rotary Club Days of Wine and Rotary event! Guests tasted approximately 40 wines, craft beers, and sampled signature entrees and desserts from the area’s top restaurants and caterers, all while experiencing a fine wine auction. The Days of Wine and Rotary Event featured both domestic and foreign wines, gourmet foods, and a live and silent auction.

The Days of Wine and Rotary Event is the Olathe Rotary’s annual fundraising event, where proceeds are split among various charities benefiting children and senior living. When asked about the charities that the event was supporting, Cindy, a volunteer at the event expanded on a few of the charities, “We’re raising money for Deb’s House, which is an orphanage in Romania, Inclusion Connection – a program here in Olathe for young adults with disabilities that provide them with a place for activities, along with Evergreen Living, which is a not for profit senior living center here in Olathe.”

Some of the items being auctioned off included an Eric Berry autographed helmet, a variety of gift baskets for every type of wine lover, four tickets to Walt Disney World and even a personal visit to your home from Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus! There was truly something for everyone!

Cindy exclaimed that, “We’re really excited to be in Olathe with our event! Ball Event Center has been very accommodating with all the different things that we needed – and didn’t even know that we needed! We worked with Michael today and he was extraordinarily accommodating and took really good care of us as we were setting up all the tables and getting things ready to go!”

The Olathe Rotary Days of Wine and Rotary Event truly highlighted the versatility of the Ball Conference Center ballroom and surrounding space! With the use of the Ballroom, Executive Boardroom, and Mabee Classrom, Ball Event Center can be transformed to cater to any type of event.
