More than 1200 people attending this year’s annual Cajunfest event May 24 at Amber Falls Winery & Cellars, plus 16 generous event sponsors, showed that “going Cajun for a cause” can make a difference to the Boys & Girls Club of Maury County. Through the successful event, Amber Falls Winery was able to present a $15,000 check to the Boys & Girls Club on July 8.
“We are so grateful for the continued support we receive from Amber Falls,” said Chris Poynter, Executive Director of Boys & Girls Club of Maury County. “A lot of hard work and planning go into making this event successful, which enables Amber Falls to make this contribution possible. They have been staunch supporters for years, and it makes a big difference for our organization and the young people we serve.”
“We’re honored to be able to help raise funds for an organization like Boys & Girls Club,” said Tim Zaunbrecher, who owns the winery with his wife Judy. “We believe firmly in their mission of enabling area young people to reach their highest potential and to become successful citizens. And we are grateful to everyone who attended Cajunfest and to the sponsors that made it all possible.”
