On Saturday, February 13, the Medina Sunrise Rotary Club sponsored its Annual Wine and Roses Benefit Dinner at Weymouth. Close to 300 people enjoyed the evening as they bid on numerous auction items, feasted on a three course dinner consisting of a mixed green salad with cranberry stilton, roasted tilapia with a Madeira, shallot & sun-dried tomato cream sauce and a grilled long bone pork chip with apple cider demi-glace accompanied by whipped caramelized onion potatoes, Brussels sprouts and carrots.

 After the main courses, there was a dessert buffet of pies . To accompany the dinner were three appropriate wines. Everyone danced throughout the night to music provided by Midnight Blue. The purpose of the evening was to raise funds for Sunrise Rotary's many projects.

The main beneficiary of the event was the Children's Center in Medina. In addition to receiving financial support, the Center was directly helped through the live auction. Very generous attendees bid on a specific item for the Center, such as painting, window treatments, or furniture.
