Lexington Wine Walk raises money for beautification
Hundreds gathered Saturday night at Icehouse Amphitheater to enjoy wine and live music and help make the town of Lexington a more beautiful place.
The eighth annual Lexington Wine Walk raised money for the Lexington Beautification Foundation, a volunteer nonprofit organization dedicated to the pursuit of beautifying the scenic and historic community.
Attendees received commemorative wine glasses and strolled the amphitheater grounds hors d’oeuvres and wine served up by teams from local restaurants and other businesses.
“There’s just so much good wine to choose from,” said Justin Corbin as he and his wife surveyed the options. With a laugh, he added “But I guess we can handle that.”
The Going Commando Band entertained the crowd throughout the evening with covers of rock, country and blues hits. Bottled water was available free to all the guests, keeping them hydrated on a warm and wine-filled night.
The Foundation will use proceeds from the event for future projects that could potentially include new “Town of Lexington” signs and new planters along Main Street. In the past, the group has worked on the beautification of Lexington Square as well as a memorial fountain at the courthouse, among other things.
