The Downtown Sertoma Club of Chattanooga will host its first Wine N ‘Shine event benefiting the Speech and Hearing Center’s Achieve Learning Center and Chattanooga’s Kids on the Block on April 20 from 7-11 p.m. at The Crash Pad.

Guests will be able to taste a variety of Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine provided by Athen’s Distributing, as well as several local wines crafted from members of the Chattanooga Wine Club. Fork & Pie will offer food to guests as local bands Old Time Travelers and In Cahoots play old time country tunes. 

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Speech and Hearing Center’s Achieve Learning Center and Chattanooga’s Kids on the Block.  The Achieve Learning Center is an accredited preschool and kindergarten that serves hearing and speech impaired children in an inclusive and intensely language-focused setting.  The center seeks to have all students ready to enter kindergarten or first grade able to perform at age-level.

Kids on the Block, Inc. is an award winning international education program designed to help introduce children with special needs into school classrooms.  The program uses child size puppets to carry out its mission and is a licensed child abuse prevention agency in the state of Tennessee. 

“The Downtown Sertoma Club is thrilled to host this unique event to raise awareness for two purposeful organizations that are essential to area youth,” said Club President Elect Shelly Killian.  “The more we raise public awareness about the services offered by both organizations, the better they will be able to serve our community.”
