Honorary chair/Advisory committee

Pete and Lisa Janzen

What a great privilege it is for us to serve as honorary chairs of WineFest No. 24 — A Toast to Children’s Health! We have been patrons of WineFest for many years, and beginning last year, we participated on the event's advisory committee. It is an honor to join the terrific staff and community volunteers to support the amazing, groundbreaking, and lifesaving work of the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital.

We attend many fundraising events, but none are better than WineFest! What could be more fulfilling than supporting the Masonic Children's Hospital and making a difference for children and their families?! In addition to that great cause, there is the wine. Not just wine the beverage — wine the experience. WineFest educates you, entices you, and introduces you to new friends and renowned wines you may not have experienced before, all for a wonderful cause.

Through the ongoing generosity and hard work of many, many individuals, WineFest has raised more than $16 million in support of children's health at the University of Minnesota. Working together and sharing our skills, compassion, dedication, and love in support of our neighbors here in the Twin Cities, our state, our region, and our world is what our community is all about. We are committed to living these values in our daily family life. And for us, there is nothing better than gathering with friends and family around our table with good food, wine, and conversation. That is WineFest!

Cheers to WineFest No. 24 — A Toast to Children's Health! We look forward to working and celebrating with you!
