Please join RU12? Community Center on Monday, December 3rd at Burlington City Arts for the RU12? Wine Auction. From 6PM to 8PM, guests will mingle, hear fabulous music by accomplished cellist Mo Citro, enjoy tantalizing hors d'oeuvres from Catering by Dale, and catch up with friends at Vermont Creamery's cheese table.

Guests are asked to bring a bottle of your favorite red or white. At the end of the evening, two lots of wine, the table of reds and the table of whites, will be auctioned. We also plan to have a couple other wine related auction items for those who may not want to bid on an entire table of wine! 

All proceeds will benefit RU12? Community Center, which celebrates, educates, and advocates with and for LGBTQ Vermonters.
