Our limited edition private label Cabernet and Chardonnay wines will be coming from the Pecos Flavors Winery in Roswell, New Mexico. We are very excited to be offering this unique FUNDRAISER for our club. Ordering details below:

Each bottle is $25. This includes $20. for the wine $1. for tax and $4. for S/H. If you care to order a case (yes you can mix & match white & red) then order 12 bottles and your 12th choice will be free except for tax & S/H. So if you take advantage of the buy 11 get 12th bottle free the total cost is $280. You may order more than 12 bottles but for every 11 you purchase at $25. each, the 12th bottle will only cost $5. Still have questions on pricing? Contact Marilyn before you submitting your order & check.
All wine will be shipped directly to your home or the address listed on your order form. RECIPIENTS MUST BE 21 YEARS OF AGE.
Checks should be made out to "WPPC of Illinois." Marilyn McClenathan will be taking orders: CHECKS & ORDER FORMS MUST BE RECEIVED BY HER NO LATER THAN MONDAY, NOVEMBER 28TH.
Remember, this is an exclusive, one time experience. Once we've met our deadline for ordering you will not be able to order again. We want everyone to get their orders in time for the holiday season! What a fun and unique way to raise money to support our club events!

Please forward this to all your friends, family, co-workers, etc. And please post the information about our wine sale on your facebook page if you have one. People can message you for the details if they are interested. (Don't post the order form directly on facebook.)

How many bottles should I purchase? Well, they will make great holiday gifts, but also for your cadet's 21st birthday, one for each year at WP, for your cadet's sponsor family, grandparent momento of WP, graduation gift…. So make sure you think ahead as you can only order the 2011 limited edition wines until 11/28/11!
