For the seventh time, Friends of Roseville Parks is staging Tapped & Uncorked outdoors at the Roseville OVAL Friday, September 24 from 6 to 10 pm. Organized as a fundraiser to enhance the community’s green spaces, this city-affiliated tasting event’s sponsors include Hamernick’s Interior Solutions, Old Dutch Foods, Skyline Electric and Warners’ Stellian and more.
The event features craft beer, wine, cider, and spirits tastings. The popular band, Power of 10, will again be on stage creating musical background. Dancing is encouraged. Other entertainment includes Human Foosball, Giant Jenga and Cornhole — all games are free to play.
Good news! Ticket prices remain the same as in previous years: $35 for general admission purchased in advance at the Tapped & Uncorked website (https://tappedanduncorked.
com/) or at Roseville City Hall. Buy at the door on the night of the event and it’s $40. An additional $15 gains admission into the VIP Spirits Tasting tent. Designated drivers pay $10, as do those signing up to volunteer at the event. Full details are on the website.
Friends of Roseville Parks (FOR Parks) is a non-profit organization whose members raise funds for the benefit of all Roseville Parks and Recreation facilities. For over fifty years we have raised more than $520,000 to beautify and improve the parks of our community, not only for Roseville residents, but for all who come to enjoy the bounteous green spaces in our community.
FOR Parks annually funds the flowers along Lexington Avenue bordering Central Park and has purchased benches and fireplaces for community centers. We have contributed to the remodeling of the Harriet Alexander Nature Center and to many other projects that make Roseville parks more usable and appealing. All proceeds from Tapped & Uncorked are poured into such projects. Our most recent project, just completed, was to facilitate the planning and financing of the Inclusive Playground updates in Central Park on behalf of a very generous anonymous donor.
