This Saturday we’re hosting (you may have heard) a fundraiser for the Crystal Lake Elementary Odyssey of the Mind team. The team is headed to the World Finals for Odyssey of the Mind, and this is your chance to support these great kids in this worthwhile program.

What is Odyssey of the Mind?

OM is a problem-solving competition. You can learn more about Odyssey of the Mind at their official website.

What’s Going On Saturday?

We’re hosting a fundraiser to help the team with their trip to the World Finals. We will be accepting donations at the door, along with a pop-can drive. Donating to the cause will get you a wristband, which is good for 5% off your bill at the tasting room for the rest of the day and evening.

In addition, we’ll be hosting a Silent Auction. Some of the items available are:

Accidentals signed ukulele!

Apache Trout Gift Card!

Brys Estate wine!

Cherry Republic basket!

Dried Cherries from Northern Organics!

Dinner and a Pie from GT Pie and the State Theater!

Soap from Mother Gypsy Soap!

VIP Tasting at Chateu Chantal!

Musical Performances

Brett Mitchell and Cheryl Wolfram will be playing in the afternoon – Cheryl will start around 2:30 PM, and Brett Mitchell will take the stage around 4PM. Afterwards, Barefoot will be playing in the St. Ambrose Cellars tasting room. Wear your wristband and get 5% off through all these peformances!

In addition, you’ll get to see two performances by the talented Odyssey of the Mind team.


Along with the build-your-own charcuterie boards in the tasting room, you can try the world famous Taco ‘Bout It Food Truck! They’ll be on site during the afternoon for all your taco-related needs.

We hope you’re able to join us for this special day and help send the team off with a bang!
