Ugliest Sweater Contest
The Rose Lowenstein Foundation held its Inaugural Brewery/Winery tour on Saturday, December 15th. Several fun seekers took a Luxury bus from the Cameron Elks Lodge and travelled to River Bluff Brewery, Windy Wine Company, Grindstone Valley Winery and followed up with dinner at Robyn's in Cameron. There were about 45 people on the tour and the Brewery/Winery chose the winner at each one of the stops; First Place at River Bluff Brewery was awarded to Charlie Carroll; Second Place at Windy Wine Company went to Rachelle Calvert; and Third Place at Grindstone Valley Winery went to Courtney Sobotka. The tour ended at the Cameron Elks Lodge #2615 where there was food, dancing and a live band. While at the lodge they held one final Ugly Sweater contest and narrowed it down from several contestants to one overall winner. After the final Ugly Sweater was announced they drew the winning raffle ticket for a trip for four to Disney World and announced Jennifer Bullock as the winner. The tour was a great success and many said they are looking forward to next years event.
