“Wines in the Wild is such a great way to start the season on the islands,” said Bank of the Islands President Robbie Roepstorff. “Being under the stars surrounded by nature, tasting good food and wine, visiting with friends and neighbors, all to benefit SCCF, are the ingredients for a perfect evening. We’re honored to continue our support of this event as Presenting Sponsor.”
