Big Grape Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Fundraiser

The 2013 “Big Grape” event to be held October 19, 2013 at the Pinnacle Bank Arena at Fonner Park. The event, attended by over 800 guests last year, is a premier wine & food experience that raises money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Volunteers will travel throughout Grand Island and the surrounding communities asking businesses to partner with Hy-Vee for this event. Guests this year can once again look forward to live & silent auctions, hundreds of wine samples and an array of gourmet foods to try throughout the evening.

The Big Grape 2012 raised over $68,000 the night of the event and all totaled, the group donated over $71,000 to JDRF.

Tickets are now available at Hy-Vee’s customer service counter. Tickets are $50 in advance or $60 at the door. “The Big Grape” committee is currently obtaining sponsorships for this year’s event. For more information on how to become a sponsor or how your business can be a part of “The Big Grape”, you may contact Ken Pedersen at Hy-Vee, 308-381-3678 or by email
