By  | 

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Wine enthusiasts hit the marina for a wine mixer to help two programs for Marquette young people.

For $40 guests of the Marquette Junior Yacht Club wine mixer got all the wine they could drink and lavish hors d'oeuvres.

The event was a fundraiser for both the junior yacht club and Forrest Roberts Theater.

The money will buy equipment and supplies.

Organizers say it's great to be able to see how much the community supports them.

"It just shows that our community supports us and I think that is so important when you're part of a club in Marquette. It's great to have the community backing you, and they get to see what we do down here," said Yacht Club Instructor Gabrielle Gentz.

In addition to the wine and food, the club also crowned their 2019 Wine Ambassador of Marquette.
