Salted Vines hosting fall events to benefit local causes

This fall, Salted Vines Vineyard & Winery is hosting three events to support local charities including the Get Well Gabby Foundation, CAMP Rehoboth Community Center and Nemours Fund for Children’s Health at A.I. Dupont.

HalloWINE will take place on Oct. 26 from 6 to 10 p.m. The adults-only event will benefit the Get Well Gabby Foundation. Guests are being encouraged to come in costume to enjoy an evening of wine and treat pairings, live music, food, and a sneak peek of a new wine release.

The $20 ticket includes five wine and Halloween treat pariings, a complimentary wine tasting glass and a wine-glass lanyard to enjoy hands-free tasting. The winery will also be offering the specials, including the Trick or Treat Box ($5 off the buyer’s choice of three bottles of wine) and $5 4-ounce glasses of wine and regular slushies.

J&B Grilling’s food truck will be on-site and live entertainment will be provided by Kyle Offidani.

A portion of the ticket proceeds will be donated to the foundation. Tickets can be purchased online at Donations of new children’s books and additional monetary donations are welcome and appreciated.

The Get Well Gabby Foundation raises funds for childhood brain cancer research to help find a cure, assisting in the care and well-being of children and their families battling childhood cancer, and providing resources for families so they can stay with their child during their journey.

Coloring for a Cause, running Nov. 1-27, invites adults and children to color a Thanksgiving-themed coloring page to benefit Nemours Fund for Children’s Health at A.I. Dupont. Coloring for a Cause is being held to raise money for one of the local teams participating in the Delmarva Dash — a two-day, 200-mile team relay race that takes place across the states of Delaware, Pennsylvania and Maryland, which benefits the Nemours Fund.

Nov. 1 is the kickoff event for the month-long fundraiser at the winery. Adults who purchase a $10 regular glass or $12 premium glass will receive a coloring sheet and supplies to Color for the Cause. From 5 to 8 p.m., guests can enjoy live music featuring Lisa & Tony and the food truck onsite, The Street Kitchen, will be donating 10 percent of their sales made during the evening.

After Nov. 1, adults and children can donate $3 and receive a festive coloring sheet and supplies and Color for the Cause.

The Nemours Fund for Children’s Health at Nemours Alfred I. DuPont Hospital supports cancer and blood-disorder research and offers patient and family-centered pediatric oncology and hematology care that includes the full range of clinical and support services alongside internationally recognized research programs.

On Nov. 10, Salted Vines and Zen Spa Fenwick will host the 0.5K Drag Race Fun Run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., to raise funds for CAMP Rehoboth Community Center.

The 0.5K run will feature glamour stations that will house fun tasks and wine to “rehydrate.” After the run is over, there will entertainment from drag queen Monique L’Amor, discounted glasses and bottles of wine, mini-massages and a food truck.

Tickets cost $32 per person and include a “Drag Bag” to hold participants’ glamour items and other swag. The event is for those 21 or older, and will be held rain or shine. Tickets are non-refundable and can be purchased online at

Camp Rehoboth Community Center is a non-profit community service organization dedicated to celebrating diversity, building a strong sense of community, and “creating a more positive” environment for all people, gay and straight.

“When we host larger events at the winery, we like to partner with a local, charitable organizations to provide financial support and bring additional awareness to their cause. We are fortunate to serve locals and people who are visiting the area, so we are great platform to get the word out about a wide variety of great charities,” said owner Adrian Mobilia.

Salted Vines Vineyard & Winery is a winery and event facility located at 32512 Blackwater Road, Frankford, about 5 miles from Bethany Beach. For six years, Salted Vines operated as Fenwick Wine Cellars in West Fenwick. In 2015, the owners invested in a piece of farmland, which allowed them to expand and build a new, larger winery.
