Twenty screens showed members, friends and family poised with stemmed glasses and six mini-bottles of wine at the ready. ‘Sommelier’ Dave guided everyone through the tastings – and feedback was lively.
Quizzes? Of course. No quiz prizes – all just for fun – but Soroptimists like a competitive edge. Having everyone muted while the answers were given out was very odd, though – no heckling!
President Chris Chua-Short (in festive red and white) thanked our Soroptimister sommelier and all the other behind-the-scenes organisers.
“Everyone entered into the spirit of the evening,” she said. “This was billed as a chance to relax, get together and have fun: we did just that. The bonus was over £300 raised for our club’s service fund.”
