The Gulls Coterie Group will this month hold its annual wine, beer and cheese fundraising event for the Williamstown Football Club.

Coterie president Mandy Drew said last year’s event had been so successful, it was now a permanent fixture.

The social and fundraising group has about 120 members and has been raising money for the club for many years. This year’s event will raise money for rehabilitation equipment for the players.

People attending will be able to enjoy wines from the Mornington Peninsula, Pyrenees, McLaren Vale, Heathcote, Barossa and Clare Valley regions, craft beers from Two Birds, Moon Dog and Young Henrys, and a variety of cheeses for tasting.

Ms Drew said it was a very enjoyable way for people to support the club.

“This year, the women have got their first night game on May 18 so hopefully people can stay and watch the women play,” she said.

The event is at the club’s Seaview events centre on Saturday, May 18 from 3-6pm.

The cost is $45.
