2020 La Pointe Center Wine Tasting

The LPC Annual Wine tasting Gala
has been postponed

This message is to update you on the La Pointe Center’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and how it impacts our work in the community.

We remain committed to our mission of “bringing beauty and culture to Madeline Island by promoting, exhibiting, educating and selling the work of artists.” To ensure community safety, the annual Wine Tasting and Silent Auction scheduled for May 24 is on hold.

We as a Board are in the process of determining how we will adapt to this unknown future. Given the proceeds from the Wine Tasting make up a substantial portion of our budget, your membership and donations are needed more than ever by the Madeline Island artists that we give to regularly.

Our Annual Wine Tasting is not just the opening of the Island’s summer season. It is the cornerstone of LPC’s fundraising efforts. We are asking our members to consider what they would have spent at the event and redirecting that to LPC as a donation. It would go a long way right now under these very trying circumstances.

Feel free to use the Paypal button below, or download the membership form here to mail in.

On behalf of all the artists on the Island, as well as our Board of Directors and volunteers who work to keep the arts thriving, thank you for your generosity. We could not do this without you!

Peg Bertel
Chair, LPC Board of Directors
