Wine Rules A Success

first_imgClose to 3,000 people embarked on Elwood Park in Melbourne for a good cause on Sunday, taking part in the 2012 Wine Rules event. 25 teams as well as plenty of spectators attended the event, which raises funds for the St. Mary’s House of Welcome, who support Melbourne’s homeless and disadvantaged. The Brash Higgins team from Adelaide was the highest team fundraiser, followed by the De Bortoli team, raising over $5,000 between them and each gaining two Victorian representative players in their team for the event. There was plenty to do for those who weren’t taking to the field either, with a winning spitting competition, silent auction, bands and a kids area.
