Big Brothers Big Sister Beer and Wine Tasting event

Elkhart Big Brothers Big Sisters of Elkhart County hosted a wine and beer tasting event.

The event, Bottlecaps & Corks will took place Saturday at Wellfield Botanic Gardens in Elkhart.

People enjoyed beer and wines from local home brewers and vintners.

There was also food by Nelson's BBQ, live music, and more.

All proceeds benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Elkhart County.

Each big brother and big sister match typically costs $1,000 to fund. Over 300 people showed up on Saturday night, so more than 10 new matches can be supported for the year.

Glenn Stutzman, the executive director of the program, said, "We wanted about 350 and we were real close."

"Next year, I hope we can double this amount," Stutzman continued, "That would be really awesome. That's where we want to go."
