Wine for Wisdom – Another Successful Year

Thursday, September 22, 2016

Muchas Gracias – Muito Obrigado – Thank you – to the sponsors, donors, community leaders and individuals who support Polk State students. Because of you, the seventh annual Wine for Wisdom – South America presented by Boyer Building Corporation was another tremendous success.

Guests were transported to the breathtaking continent South America. The gymnasium was transformed into the famous Copacabana Beach with a festive flare of Carnaval. Polk State student, Amanda Smith addressed attendees and said, “As students we are often limited financially, but that shouldn’t be the barrier if we want to pursue our passion. Polk has given me so many opportunities, several unique experiences, and numerous chances to explore different possibilities. Thanks to generous donors, such as yourselves, and to the many scholarships from various organizations, I have not had to sweat the big stuff like the cost of a higher education and I will graduate debt free with my bachelors in December. With that said, please know that the gracious gifts are not overlooked or taken for granted. Thank you for all that you do!”

Salud – Brinde – Cheers to you, our sponsors and of the individual attendees for your support of Polk State students.  Your contributions make a tremendous impact in the lives of Polk State students.  Mark your calendars for September 14, 2017 as the World Tour Continues to South Africa!
