An abundance of joy and patriotic pride overflowed as the fifth annual Wine for Wisdom World Tour came home on September 11, 2014 to the wonderful “Land of the Free” – the glorious United States of America!

This magnificent evening of the beauty and splendor of our homeland was experienced by 375 enthusiastic guests, as Polk State College celebrated the red, white and blue culture and the delicious flavors of American cuisine paired perfectly with wine that sent taste buds soaring!  Once again proudly presented by the Boyer Building Corporation, this fabulous night was carefully sculpted by a master chef and sommelier to bring maximum savoring pleasure to palates throughout the room.

Celebrating its fifth year at Polk State, this excitedly-anticipated event embodied not only the food, wine and festivities of America, but the camaraderie of joining with one’s fellow philanthropic community and corporate leaders. As always, the generous contributions to this event will help make the dreams of a higher education for Polk State College students become a reality through Polk State College Foundation scholarships.
