Hundreds of people raised their glasses to the Meals on Wheels program at a recent fundraiser. The DuPage Senior Citizens Council (DSCC) hosted its second annual “Aging Gracefully” wine tasting and benefit auction.
Nearly 300 people sampled different wines and bid on items during a silent auction. Executive Director Marylin Krolack says they host the fundraiser around the holidays to help give their clients something to be thankful for.
“One kind of thinks about what they have and what they are grateful for and yet unfortunately, the people we serve aren’t as fortunate,” said Krolack.
The wine tasting raised more than $40,000 for the DSCC, which will go towards well-being checks and home-delivered meals programs.
