We’re proud to have partnered with Chankaska Creek Winery and Maud Hixson on two special fundraising projects in 2016.
Two special label wines, Deep Valley Red and Deep Valley White, are available for a limited time. The special labels feature a Lois Lenski illustration from one of the Betsy-Tacy books. This fundraiser is only good while supplies last, so hurry to get yours now. A bottle of wine makes a wonderful gift for the holidays!
Chankaska Creek Ranch & Winery is located just a few miles north of Mankato on North Riverfront Drive to Hwy 22 No. Watch for the sign for Chankaska Creek Winery on Hwy 22 N. If you are from the following states, you can have the wine shipped to you: MN, CA, CO, FL, GA, IL, IA, and MT. The Deep Valley label wines are not listed on Chankaska’s website – call to request.
Singer and BTS member Maud Hixson released a new CD, “Listening For Your Song” with a concert at the Chankaska Creek Winery for the 2016 Deep Valley Homecoming in June. Hixson, accompanied by Rick Carlson, recorded 20 songs that were referred to in the Betsy-Tacy books. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this CD is donated to the BTS. CD’s sell for $15 and are available in Tacy’s House Gift Shop or online.
Thanks to Jane Schwickert from Chankaska Creek Winery and Maud Hixson and Rick Carlson for your generosity and support of the BTS!
