Grapes and Grain Raises Record Amount

Susie Penders, the Reverend Lynn Baker-Dooley, and Ellie Lemaire.

The University of Rhode Island Friends of Women’s Athletics and the Reverend Lynn Baker-Dooley raised a record amount of money at the third annual Evening of Grapes and Grain on Saturday, June 9. The event was presented by South County Hospital Orthopedics Center.

“It is my joy to report that because of the generous support of all our sponsors and the hard work of scores of volunteers and staff, Friends of Women’s Athletics raised nearly $36,000 at our third annual Evening of Grapes and Grain,” Baker-Dooley said. “This event was attended by more than 250 people as a great show of support for our female student-athletes and their coaches. In three years we have raised more than $70,000, so we look forward to next year and encourage you to mark your calendars now for the second Saturday evening in June 2013.

An Evening of Grapes and Grain was held at the home of Baker-Dooley and URI President David M. Dooley and featured a wide selection of wines, beers, and hors d’oeuvres, as well as live music provided by URI students.

“Grapes and Grain was a fantastic event that showcased our women’s coaches and athletic programs,” said Marnie Dacko, coordinator for development and marketing/special projects for women’s athletics. “Along with Friends of Women’s Athletics, I am planning and looking forward to next year’s event.”

All proceeds from An Evening of Grapes and Grain support URI women’s athletics.
