Welcome to our 2024 Wine & Cheese Social! This year we are excited to partner with Bliss in the Barn. Net proceeds from this event will be split evenly between the Grace Lutheran School Scholarship Fund and Veterans Bloom / Leashes of Valor.

Grace Lutheran School Scholarship Fund

Grace Lutheran School wants every child to GROW, LEARN, SUCCEED in Christ!  We want to ensure that every student that would like to be a part of the Grace family would have that opportunity.  The GLS Scholarship Fund is one way that families can reach that financial goal.  All monetary donations will directly support families in the upcoming school year.  Thank you for helping families in their efforts to provide a quality, Christ-centered education for their children. 

Veterans Bloom / Leashes of Valor

Veterans Bloom, extends an invitation to veterans, their caregivers, or anyone eager to support a veteran to join us on the farm and partake in the enriching experience of flower farming.

Leashes of Valor, a national nonprofit founded by veterans, provides highly-trained service dogs to post-9/11 veterans dealing with PTSD, TBI, or military sexual trauma. The organization, committed to excellence in the world of service dogs, sources dogs from shelters and ensures a lifetime of care for both veterans and their service dogs. Founded by retired Marine Corps Capt. Jason Haag, Leashes of Valor operates from Axel’s Place, a facility in Fredericksburg, Virginia, where veterans undergo real-life training with their service dogs, supported by contributions that sponsor rooms or kennels.
