GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) - After a two-year hiatus because of the pandemic, the Double Tree Hotel on Horizon Dr. was the place to be Saturday night.

That’s because the Junior Service League was pouring for non-profits one again at this year’s U.S. Bank Viva El Vino Fundraiser.

The event highlighted plenty of wine tasting, a beer garden and plentiful food. Over 100 items were auctioned off at its signature silent auction, with all proceeds benefitting nonprofits in the local community.

“The Junior Service League is a nonprofit organization, and what we do is essentially gather funds from the community and then we redistribute them through our grant program,” said Stephanie Plieness with the Junior Service League. “We focus on programs that are benefitting woman and children and families. So, think of everything from Girl Scouts of Western Colorado to breast cancer treatment programs at Community Hospital.”
