HARTA planning “Uncorked” event for July 14

Posted: Thursday, March 16, 2017

Huntington Area Recreational Trails Association (HARTA) and the Historic Forks of the Wabash invite you to participate in the 3rd annual Forks of the Wabash Uncorked Wine and Beer Tasting Event. The event will be held July 14, 2017, from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m., rain or shine, at the Historic Forks of the Wabash Park, 3011 W. Park Drive.

The goals for the 3rd annual Forks of the Wabash Uncorked event are to sell at least 400 tickets and raise $20,000, with all the proceeds and contributions from the event to go towards supporting the development and maintenance of trails in Huntington along with helping to preserve and protect the Forks of the Wabash. Tickets for the event will be $35 at the gate, $30 in advance and $10 for a designated driver. Plans are well under way and HARTA was very pleased with the attendance of over 400 guests in 2016, and looks forward to growing the event in 2017. Tickets go on sale May 20.

This event would not be possible without the generous donations from community sponsors. Together HARTA’s goal can become a reality, and provide needed monies to support the continued development and enhancement of trails and history, making the community an even better place to raise a family.

Sponsors will benefit by being recognized in a variety of ways. Organizations will receive recognition as outlined in the sponsorship program. HARTA anticipates an organization’s exposure will be seen by hundreds of attendees and thousands that will see the event advertised. To ensure that your support is recognized, HARTA asks that your organization provides us with a logo, by sending it to the Huntington Area Recreational Trails Association by e-mailing it to info@harta-gotrails.org.

There are several levels of sponsorship an organization can consider: Estate, $2,000 Vineyard, $1,000; Barrel, $750; Keg, $500 and Bottle, $250. Sponsors are also needed for the Live Band; organizations will receive recognition based on monetary value donated.
