WINE STYLES


Read To Me Foundation held the first Wine Styles Fundraiser at the beautiful West Glen location of Wine Styles Store in West Des Moines, Iowa.


From the moment you walk into WineStyles, your perfect wine buying experience begins. Find yourself transported to an Old World wine cellar, surrounded by a selection of the finest wines available from around the globe, all at affordable, easy-to-swallow prices—most of our wines are priced at under $25!

Kathy Smith, Treasurer for Read To Me Foundation, arranged the first Wine Styles fundraiser in conjunction with Wine Styles Store as a private "Wine Tasting" for invited guests to raise funds for the Read To Me Foundation's literacy mission. Invited guests donated $10 per guest to become a "literacy Angel".


The wine tasting fundraising event was a successful and fun evening for all. Thank You Wine Styles for the first of many more Wine Styles/Read To Me Foundation wine tasting fundraisers
