Wine Tasting Event Benefits Estrada Sports Scholarship, 5th Corner

 10/09/2017 - 23:45

A wine-tasting benefit will be held at the Fifth Corner Teen Center from 7 to 9 p.m., Oct. 21.

The event benefits the teen center and the Ryan Estrada Scholarship Fund.

Estrada, a junior at Saline High School who participated in wrestling, football and track and field, died suddenly at school last december.

The Fifth Corner Teen Center provides students with a positive location to socialize after school. It operates on donations and grants. No fees are charged.

Peter Rufener is pastor at Saline Community Church, which houses the teen center.

"About six years ago a young man walked into the 5th Corner for the first time and stayed all through middle school and his freshman year of high school.  He loved the place and we loved him.  He had a unique personality that saw no strangers and treated each student that came to the 5th Corner as a friend.  In many ways he embodied the hope that we have for the 5th Corner Student," Rufener said.

Rufener said Teen Center officials approached Estrada's parents about doing an event that would hnor Ryan, help the teen center and benefit the Ryan Estra Scholarship Fund, which helps students afford football and wrestling camp. Estrada's parents approved the wine-tasting event.

Tickets are $79 each.

A grant is a honor of monetary guide for an understudy to promote their training. Grants are granted in view of different criteria, which more often than not mirror the qualities and motivations behind the benefactor or organizer of the honor. Jack Sparrow Coat
