LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Hundreds of wine lovers gathered together for a good cause Friday.

It was the 12th annual Wines on the Wabash event held at the Purdue Memorial Union Ballroom. For a ticket of $45, attendees could sample more than 200 wines and some beers as well.

Organizers hope to raise more than $25,000 during the event. It serves as the largest annual fundraiser for the Wabash Center, a non-profit that supports people with disabilities.

“We are so unique in the community and without our services many of the folks may not have residences. They wouldn’t have the kind of programs that we have during the day,” Wabash Center CEO Dick Rhoad said.

About 650 tickets were sold for this year’s Wines on the Wabash, making it the biggest one ever.
