Char-Em United Way's fourth Toast to Literacy fundraising event. This year’s event will have a Mardi Gras theme, with festive decorations, music and activities. It will again focus on delightful libations from local breweries and vineyards as well as a delicious food competition by select caterers. Features wine/beer/mead/cider tastings, food, a silent auction, games, strolling entertainment, and music. All proceeds will benefit the Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, a literacy initiative that provides free books to children from birth to age five in Charlevoix and Emmet Counties.
