The Friends of Fort George, the Niagara Historical Society, and Ravine Vineyard Estate Winery are organizing their second at-home fundraising dinner, this one celebrating Black History Month.
A special History in the Vineyard event will be held Feb. 11, with a gourmet take-out dinner, with all three restaurants that participated in the first event, leading up to Christmas, once again taking part.
“The Niagara Historical Society and the Friends of Fort George were so thrilled with the community support we received with our December fundraiser event,” says Amy Klassen from the Niagara-on-the-Lake Museum.
“We raised close to $8,000 in support of the Niagara Historical Society and Friends of Fort George, while also supporting three local restaurants: Ravine Vineyard Estate Winery, The Garrison House, and Ruffino’s Pasta Bar & Grill.”
Chefs have prepared a special menu with lots of choices, and the food will be distributed in special containers that can go directly in the oven to be heated up, providing gourmet options for a three-course meal, says Tony Chisholm, president of the Friends of Fort George. With each ticket, a bottle of Ravine’s Sand & Gravel wine can be purchased for $10, with a limit of two per ticket.
The evening will also include links to celebrate Black History Month.

Tickets are $100 per person, and include a $40 tax receipt.
