A Toast to Education is a fun event sponsored by the Farmington/Farmington Hills Education Foundation and Busch’s Fresh Food Market that features local craft beers and wines from around the world paired with tasting menus from terrific local restaurants and caterers. The evening also includes amazing live entertainment provided by Dave Drake and the Awesome All Star Big Band, a strolling raffle featuring innovative household, educational, leisure and entertainment items donated by local, national and global organizations, and the event’s signature “Wheel of Wine” (guests take a chance at winning a great bottle of wine by spinning the wheel) game. Proceeds from this event are used to fund projects in technology, scholastic achievement, extracurricular enrichment, and the arts for Farmington Public Schools students.
