Tasteful benefit event raises $7,000 for health care clinic

An inaugural benefit event at the Wine Country Inn in Palisade raised $7,000 for the Marillac health care clinic.

“We are extremely pleased and grateful to all our participants and guests who made our first Edesia successful. We’re looking forward to 2012 with every expectation of being more successful in raising funding for Marillac Clinic,” said Jerome Strack, general manager of the Wine Country Inn and co-chair of Edesia.

Named after the Roman goddess of wine and food, Edesia featured wine and spirits paired with foods.
