A Mid Summer Italian Festival Fundraiser

The Rotary Club of Ann Arbor's Virtual Mid Summer Italian Festival fundraiser was fabulous! The food and wine from Paesano Restaurant & Wine Bar were superb and the informative wine talk presented by Mike Roddy and Chaad Thomas was as entertaining as it was interesting. The playlist of Italian music, compiled by Kathy Waugh, added to the ambiance. MC Steve Schram was extraordinary. Best of all, more than $14,000 was raised to support Rotary's community projects! Thank you to the all involved and all who participated.

Ran out of wine after the Mid Summer Italian Festival? Or, never able to taste it? It’s not too late! Until supplies are gone, you can visit Paesano (stop by and/or call 734-971-0484) and purchase any of the wines featured at the dinner. Prices remain the same ($30, $40 or $50) with a portion being donated to Rotary. Reds, rose & a white available. See the descriptions below.
