The Wine & Food Celebration includes more than 100 wines from all over the world, more than 25 local restaurants and caterers serving their finest food and live music from the John Strickler Trio. This year's event will take place from 2-5pm be Sunday, November 5th at the University Plaza Convention Center. Tickets are $30 in advance or $35 at the door; tickets are available at the Brown Derby International Wine Center and Andy's Frozen Custard locations.
Proceeds from both events help to fund children's programming on Ozarks Public Television. OPT spends around $500,000 on children's programming each year-about a quarter of the overall budget. We're pleased to be able to provide quality programming to the children of the Ozarks.
The Wine & Food Celebration is in its 19th year and has raised over $500,000 for OPT. The Friday Night TV Dinner began in 2003, replacing the traditional patron's party, and has since raised well over $100,000 for the station.
Tickets for the Friday Night TV Dinner are $150/person or $1000 for a table of eight. Both prices include early entrance to the Wine & Food Celebration on Sunday.
