The Purple People Bridge will soon transform into a runway for a fun, fashionable and philanthropic event!
“Red Pink and Blue” (RPB), produced by Cincy Chic and Locals on Living, is a women’s health awareness event with a fashionable twist. The “Red” represents heart health, the “Pink” represents breast health and the “Blue” represents diabetes health. The three organizations benefiting from this event are the American Heart Association, Pink Ribbon Girls and the American Diabetes Association.
RPB will take place on Friday June 25 on the Kentucky landing of the Purple People Bridge. Come out and enjoy an evening on the bridge with food, drinks, shopping and a fashion show. Also check out the St. Elizabeth Healthcare mammography van and get a complimentary blood pressure check. The event will start at 6:30p.m., the fashion show will begin at 9p.m., and the After Party kicks off at Star Lanes on the Levee at 10:30p.m.
Buy your tickets today! It’s $15 per person, and 100% of the proceeds* go to the three participating philanthropies. First 200 attendees will receive a swag bag full of goodies! Buy your tickets online – last year the event sold out, so don’t delay!
And since this is a wine aficionado blog, below is more information about the wines that’ll be featured at our event. Hope to see you there!
FRONTERA MERLOT- CHILE
Best Selling Light Chilean Merlot Wine
Ruby-like, bright in color Fruit forward with red plum and varietal characteristics Medium dry, medium body and harmonious with a good finish This wine marries two of the classic Bordeaux grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon offers character, complexity and longevity, while Merlot adds softer tannins and elegance, patterned after the same classic blend that distinguishes many fine chateaux of Bordeaux.
For 20 years leading pioneer in earth friendly wine making
Valley Oaks Chardonnay is characteristically golden straw in color, with aromas of tropical fruit like mango, pineapple, banana, ripe Kiwi and honeydew melon alongside notes of cinnamon, vanilla bean, lemon grass with hints of hazel nut and cloves. The wine is crafted to be fruit-forward, medium weight, with crisp citrus and lingering melon, pear and crème fraiche flavors. The balanced mouthfeel leads to a wonderfully lingering finish. We’ll never disappoint you with our Chardonnay: it’s like saying hello to an old friend
This Cabernet Sauvignon is complex with various layers of spice and flavors. On the nose you will find enticing aromas of black cherry, blackberry, cassis and vanilla with evident spice from the oak and a hint of herbs. Tasting delivers a multi-layered wine with texture of ripe blackberry, mocha, toffee and vanilla. Medium firm tannins provide structure and balance to this medium bodied Cabernet, which will continue to evolve in the bottle.
PINOT GRIGIO DELLE VENEZIE-ITALY
Pale yellow in color with greenish reflections. The nose is reminiscent of acacia flowers and the delicate scent of almonds. Clean and refreshing on the palate with hints of linden and honey. Lemony nose in dry flavor with a hint of smokiness.
DELATOUR PINOT NOIR-FRANCE
The nose was filled with red raspberry and cherry, along with some nice dirty earth aromas. The palate was fruity ripe strawberry, more of the raspberry, along with some subtle herb and earthy forest floor notes. This wine comes from languedoc, Ruby color, intense, fruity and soft.
