Wine Women and Song TemeculaAt one of our prior events, Rosalie Porter won a wine tasting for 20 people in our basket raffle. We felt very lucky to be invited and gladly joined in the fun. It was held at the Total Wine and More store in Temecula on 4/22/23. They have a tasting room at this location and we felt very honored and special to be there. We were the first group back in the store since the pandemic!

Rosalie brought some cheese and crackers for snacks and they were perfect with the wine. We sampled 8 wines and they had a great slideshow that accompanied the tastings. This showcased the regions and grape varietals for each wine. The store provided 2 wine experts and the store manager, Rosie. They went above and beyond with their service.

There were 2 retreat grads who attended this event. We shared information on Healing Odyssey and the story of how we all got to be there. The group greatly appreciated hearing about Healing Odyssey and our mission. Rosalie shared her experience at our retreat and we found there were 4 other women cancer survivors attending that day. We also shared information on our upcoming fundraiser on July 8th; Wine, Women & Song’ and Men too!

It was a beautiful sunny day and we toasted to our health, to friendships, old and new, and to being together. We were all so happy and grateful to be spending time together. Sharing, caring, and laughing, alot! Togetherness and connections! We need more of that for sure, and that’s what Healing Odyssey is all about.

Look for more fun special events like this in other basket raffles coming up!!

A big thank you to Rosalie for the invite and an awesome day!
