LEXINGTON, N.C. — An end-of-summer fundraising party, “Wines of the World,” will be held on Aug. 24, 7 p.m., at the Municipal Club, 200 Country Club Blvd.

Proceeds will benefit Positive Wellness Alliance, A 2013 Adam Foundation recipient that supports people infected and affected with HIV/AIDS. Monies raised will go toward shoring up the organization’s annual budget funds. Its board will serve as hosts.

There will be plenty of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. Wine parings include: New Age Torrontes from Argentina (served as a Mimosa Cocktail); Blouberg Sauvignon Blanc from South Africa; La Maialina from Italy; Frisk Reisling from Australia; and Castell De Raimat from Spain.

There will be a chance to win $1,000 in a reverse raffle drawing. Consolation prizes and silent auction bidding will flow through the night.
