Cannon River Winery hosts dinner for breast cancer

Today's the last day to make reservations to join in on a three-course meal with wine at Cannon River Winery to benefit breast cancer. The dinner, which will be catered by Grandpa's Event Center, will include a salad, main course of either prime rib or chicken Kiev and cheesecake for dessert. It will be preceded by a tasting of wines, one of which participants can choose to have with their dinner.

Cannon Falls resident Jody Knutson has to raise $2,300 in order to participate in the Twin Cities Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk in August. She was looking for a good fundraising outlet and approached the winery with her idea. They were amenable and donated the space to the event.

Knutson, of Cannon Falls, has done the walk once before. She will be in the third trimester of her pregnancy come August and laughs at the mental image of herself making the 60-mile trek. Knutson's mother will be joining in on the walk as well.

If you're interested in joining, call Jody to RSVP at 651.278.1170. The dinner is limited to 48 people.
