8th Annual FUN(d) Raising Party is Coming Soon! Hope to see you all there.

Happy Summer 2023 to all of you!

We are very pleased to be continuing our 8th Annual Fund(d) Raising Party on Saturday, September 9 at our farm and Apple Orchard in Pepin, Wisconsin. Your friends and family are most welcome to join you. We will enjoy meeting them. Children of all sizes are welcome ( we’ve got a new play area for the really little ones! ).

The party will start at 1:00 P.M., with an afternoon of various beverages and snacks. We also will again have corn hole games, 2 boards and several other semi-challenging but always fun games. We will be serving dinner at 5:30 P.M., and all can hang out into the evening, or if you prefer to stay over (we will find a place you you!).

If the urge overwhelms you, bring a small snack or dessert to share…. That is so nice if it works for you.

We raise donations for our 3 adopted charities by asking you to make out a check of any amount to one of them. Also, all who attend will take home a bottle of our 2019 Altered States Apple wine as our way of saying thanks for attending and helping us improve the lives of our local and distant neighbors.

As a token of our appreciation we will also match each donation you make to a charity by matching 100% whatever you donate!

We will always post a total of receipts from each charity ( your privacy protected ), showing our match, within 1 month on our website so please look for those in our Financial Section. You will receive your acknowledgment of your tax-deductible contribution directly from each of our 3 charities you donate to ( please have a mail address or email on/attached to your check ).

Our 3 charities remain active in their respective missions, and are so excited to read of their progress in helping our human neighbors thrive:

  • Hope Coalition: Providing comprehensive services to women struggling with abuse and homelessness, and their children, in the Lake Pepin Minnesota/Wisconsin area, with temporary housing, counseling, and employment services.
  • Habitat For Humanity of Minnesota: Providing an opportunity for financially challenged individuals and families to obtain and own affordable quality housing, benefitting all involved, including stabilizing their communities.
  • Central Asia Institute, Bozeman Montana: Providing education and employment to rural residents, particularly women, in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Tajiistan. Each of these countries have unique challenges . They continue to succeed in each of them… check out their progress thru our link on this website.

We’ve said this in the past, but it bears repeating: We are all ultimately bound together as human beings and when we help another then our lives and our whole society is improved by their success. We are well aware that you all do these actions, daily, as we help a family member or friend, contribute to our churches and social groups, work on political campaigns , support community activities. Our Annual Fall Fun(d) Raising Party is just our way of helping others succeed and giving back to a society that has given of so much. We will continue to do this as long as it works. We also so enjoy reconnecting with so many of you who have helped with planting and harvesting of our vineyard, and frankly, love a fun party!

Our address is:
N1901 County Road CC, Pepin, WI 54759.

Please Text, E-mail, or call me with number attending, for our food planning (information is below). Don’t hesitate to bring a neighbor or friends who share this desire to help those who need a hand. If you can’t make it to our event then feel free to send us a check (to one of our charities) address to James Lee at the farm address.
Please get it to us within 3 days of the event as we promptly total donations, match them and mail all that to the charities, requesting their prompt receipts on our website Financial Donations sections, so that you know that we do what we say.

We have had a almost 40 year connection with a group in Key West, Florida, called One Human Family. They have mailed out millions of number stickers all over the world… check our their website and request one for free. They believe:

  • Like Fingers on a Hand
  • We are all different and unique
  • We are all of equal value
  • We are all created to work together
  • And although we appear separate
  • We are all linked – and a part of – each other

We believe the above, as each of us is a spark of the consciousness that pervades the cosmos, everyone a lamp that shines, all equally precious, and each contributing to a bright beam of consciousness that we can all feel. When we help others live better lives, our lives improve with the shared joy.

See you on Saturday, September 9, 2023!

Peace, Love, and Charity,
Lost Creek Hippies Vineyard
