The entry fee is $10 and includes a raffle ticket (additional raffle tickets can be purchased for $1). There will be giveaways all night long, including photography gift certificates and Richmond Rocks books, and Mark Smith of Midas of Richmond is slated to be there with some Midas giveaways too.

The Wine Loft offers a wide array of appetizers, as well as discounted wines on Wednesday. The Wine Loft’s cozy atmosphere is great for networking, so bring a friend–or let the folks from the Wine Loft,, and introduce you.

Wine Down Wednesdays have raised as much as $1,000 each month for valuable Richmond non-profit organizations.
