first_imgTouch Football South Australia’s (TFSA) charity partner, The Hutt Street Centre’s, annual major fundraising event – Touch Wine – is occurring on Sunday, 11 November 2012 at City Touch in Adelaide. Touch Wine is a 40+ team Touch Football tournament involving winery teams from across South Australia and other corporate partners with all proceeds going to the Hutt Street Centre and addressing homelessness in South Australia.Surrounding the tournament is a free public food and wine festival featuring South Australia’s top wine, gourmet food, live music, kids’ entertainment including sports clinics, face painting and the ever popular celebrity Touch Football match. This year’s celebrity match features South Australian Premier, Jay Weatherill, former Opal, Rachel Sporn, current Port Adelaide Power player, Justin Westhoff, Channel Nine sports presenter, Troy Gray and a host of other South Australian sporting and media identities.Since it was established in 2007, Touch Wine has raised over $500,000 for South Australia’s homeless and continues to get bigger each year. The event was the brain child of UK based internationally acclaimed wine critic, Matthew Jukes, who whilst walking through Adelaide’s parklands noticed a large number of homeless people. Inspired, he came up with the concept and continues to make a special trip to Adelaide annually for the event.TFSA Operations Manager, Tim Wyld is proud TFSA is a key partner in the event. “The issue of homelessness is literally on our doorstep at the very competition venue where Touch Wine is held, so to be able to use our sport as a vehicle to help address this issue presents a unique opportunity and strong synergy with us and Hutt Street (centre),” Wyld saidThe event also features a VIP marquee for those looking for the full experience on the day which includes private fashion shows from Mai Loui, silent auctions, a comprehensive food and drink package and the opportunity to network with leading South Australian business leaders, sporting identities and politicians including South Australian Premier, Jay Weatherill.For those in Adelaide, this free public event commences from midday on Sunday – so come down to a transformed City Touch (Park 17) and enjoy a picnic in the park and all-round great day out for the whole family.To read about how Touch Wine has helped to change Stan’s life, please click on the link below:http://www.facebook.com/pages/Touch-Football-South-Australia/162946213729398?ref=ts&fref=ts#!/notes/the-big-picnic-at-touchwine/stans-story/371013959642099 Related Links2012 Touch Winelast_img
