Wine fest raises $25,000

The 25th annual Alamo Music and Wine Festival, sponsored by Alamo Rotary, raked in $25,000, which will be used for college scholarships and service projects, said club president Al Makely. Around 3,000 people attended the event on Sept. 8.

"We made record profits," Makely said. "The music was well-received. We got tremendous compliments. We considered it a block party. We got great publicity."

The majority of the money will be used for scholarships. Some funds will be donated to student service clubs, as well as used for local projects, Makely said, such as the benches throughout Alamo.

At the event, Rotary named retired Deputy Fire Chief Chris Suter as Citizen of the Year.
