Fundraiser for Touch of Nature Center
ALTO PASS -- If you happened to stop by Alto Vineyards Sunday and purchased something, you were able to help Touch of Nature Environmental Center. The money raised will help fund scholarships to people who cannot afford to attend the Touch of Nature summer camps.
Dozens of people showed up to help support the program. There was live entertainment, children's activities, and food served all day. There was also a wine tasting and a chance to win prizes.
The Touch of Nature summer camps are geared toward disabled Adults and children.
"We are a part of the southern Illinois community and we want to be very, very active in that. And anything that we can offer to make people's lives better, that's what we want to do," explains Mike Carter, the Touch of Nature Director.
If you missed out Sunday, there's another big benefit event coming up on October fourth, the Buffalo Tro' will include a dinner, as well as live and silent auctions.
