FRIDAY, 10/6 -  Sip2Give at TELAYA WINERY

What goes better with wine than Jazz?  The Idaho Jazz Society is part of Telaya's unique Community Giving Program. Telaya Wine Co., an award-winning maker of high quality wines in Garden City, donates 10% of their sales on the First Friday of each month to select charitable organizations. October is Idaho Jazz Society's month. Telaya will donate 10% of the day's proceeds to the IJS Scholarship Fund.
     Telaya's beautiful riverfront winery is located at 240 E. 32nd St., Garden City, along the Boise River Greenbelt just west of the Riverside Hotel. We encourage our members who appreciate fine wines to drop by their new tasting room and sample their offerings, as well as to help make their October IJS day extra special.
     Sip2Give Winery Hours:  Noon - 8:00 p.m.
     Live Jazz from 5:30 - 8:00 p.m. by Shirley and Quinn VanPaepeghem
A food truck will be available to provide additional refreshments. 
In addition, the IJS will offer a raffle at 7 p.m. with great odds. Prizes include tickets to the Side Street Strutters concert on Nov. 14 at the Riverside (see below), as well as a Jiffy Lube Oil Change gift certificate.  Find out more about Telaya at telayawine.com.
