Penn State Lehigh Valley Lion Sighting to be held at Vynecrest
Join Penn State alumni and friends at a "Lion Sighting" event December 14, 2006, beginning at 6:00 p.m., at Vynecrest Winery in Breinigsville. The event, sponsored by the Office of Alumni Relations at Penn State Lehigh Valley, is free of charge, but donations will be accepted for the campus’ THON fundraising efforts. THON – the largest student-run philanthropy in the world – is a year-round fundraising event that culminates with a 46-hour dance marathon in February to benefit The Four Diamonds Fund, Conquering Childhood Cancer, at Penn State's Bryce Jordan Center.
Vynecrest Vineyards and Winery, located at 172 Arrowhead Lane in Breinigsville, is owned and operated by John and Jan Landis. After several years of research and testing, they opened the doors to their 34-acre winery in 1989. In 1997, Vynecrest became a charter member of the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail and moved its original tasting room from the lower section of the barn into a newly renovated upper section, which today still remains as their featured tasting area. In 1999, Vynecrest started partnership with Christkindlmart in Bethlehem where their German Gluhwein "Spiced Winter Red" remains a seasonal favorite. Vynecrest currently produces 8,500 gallons a year.
Individuals interested in attending the Lion Sighting must R.S.V.P. to Nicole Ronco at 610-285-5073.
