Ellwood House will host its Wine on the Terrace fundraiser Sept. 14.

DeKALB – The annual Wine on the Terrace benefit for the nonprofit Ellwood House Association will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14.

Inboden’s , a local specialty food market and wine merchant, is partnering with Ellwood House for this event.

As visitors linger on the terrace sipping a selection of wines they will enjoy music performed by Craig Mathey. Guests can also take a self-guided tour through the first floor of the mansion or visit the Visitor Center for desserts and coffee. A silent auction will take place throughout the evening.

Tickets are $50 a person and should be purchased in advance at Inboden’s, the Ellwood House Visitor Center or online at www.ellwoodhouse.org/donatepurchase. Only 200 tickets will be sold.
