A sip here and sip there makes for a fun annual fundraiser assisting an organization of St. Thomas the Apostle Parish.

The St. Thomas Wine Tasting starts at 6:30 p.m., Jan. 25, in the Newton Knights of Columbus Hall, 707 S. Van Buren St. There is a $10 minimum per adult donation, which will benefit the St. Thomas Angels Group. That organization provides many outreach services for the Catholic parish and the entire community.

A wine tasting fundraiser has been offered for 12 years in Newton. With the mortgage burning last year on the new church, proceeds will go to the Angels Group this year. Over the years, the money raised with the wine event helped pay the church mortgage.

Volunteers with the Angels Group offer various outreach services such as birthday cards to shut-ins, cookies at Christmas and assistance with the Catholic Heart Work Camp program that sends young people to help people in need living indifferent communities across the countries. The Angels Group is doing God’s work one-on-one in so many ways.
