Songs for September
|Date:||Mon, Sep 5, 2022|
|Time||12:00 PM to 5:00 PM|
Dear Valued Wine Club members,
We are writing to you today with a request and an invitation. If you have been a member of our winery for a period of time you know that we are a tight knit staff that refers to ourselves as family. This is a statement that we take seriously. At this time one of our family members is in need. September Van Der Stoel our fellow Tasting Associate is battling stage 4 breast cancer. Apart from being an employee at Barons Creek Vineyards, September is also a cornerstone of the Fredericksburg musical community. A professional singer/actress with decades of experience performing in New York City and around the country, she is a local fixture serving as the director Fredericksburg Chorale, choir director at the Presbyterian Church, vocal consultant at Fredericksburg High School, and personal voice coach to many young, aspiring musicians in town. She is also a loving wife to her husband, Alex; our Operations Manager, and a doting wife to their son, Max, who recently began 6th grade at Fredericksburg Middle School.
On Monday, September 5th, 2022 from 12pm-5pm, Barons Creek Vineyards will be hosting a special event entitled “Songs for September, Give Cancer the Boot”. It is a collaboration of various musical artists that regularly play at the winery and intended to raise funds. In addition to supporting September and her family, guests can enjoy live music and purchase a glass of wine, including the new “Pink Boots”, the most recent vintage of the award-winning Texas cabernet sauvignon, with a themed label inspired by the event. Marc and Marta Chase, owners of Barons Creek Vineyards, will generously match any donations raised between now and the weekend of September 2-5, up to $5,000. This family friendly event does not require reservations and complimentary cookies/lemonade will be available. Nevertheless, any guests wishing to order food or enjoy a wine tasting can do so at advertised prices.
Live music provided by Armando Escobedo, The Audio Detectives, David Selbo, The Bill Smallwood Ensemble and Kelany and the Allnighters. Anyone may donate to “Hope for September” by clicking here. Donations collected will go towards helping the Van der Stoel family with medical and living expenses. Barons Creek Vineyards is located at 5865 Highway 290 East, Fredericksburg. For reservations call (830) 304-3000.
