4th Annual Wings, Waves & Wine Open House helps local non-profit in effort to expand

By  | 

SIOUX FALLS - The Sertoma Butterfly House and Marine Cove will be hosting their 4th Annual Open House Event tonight in Sioux Falls.

The Event includes wine and beer tastings, hors d'oeuvres, a silent auction and wine raffle - all while enjoying the beauty of the butterfly and aquarium exhibits.

Because the Butterfly House and Marine Cove is a non-profit organization, every dollar helps in their effort to one day expand in their current location.

Executive Director Audrey Willard says the annual open house make a big difference.

"We don't receive any funding from the city of Sioux Falls and the state of South Dakota. We're the only non profit attraction in Sioux Falls that doesn't receive those tax payer dollars so when we have events like this. It's a great experience for the people that come through the doors and it makes a big difference for us in all of our funding."

The Fundraiser is from 6 until 9 pm tonight. If you are interested in becoming a member of the Butterfly House and Marine Cove, visit their website.
