Fundraising Events

Olathe Family YMCA
Grinter's Sunflower Farm and Stone Pillar Winery

Depart from the Olathe YMCA at 9:00 am and travel to Grinter's Sunflower Farm for a delightful photo opportunity! In the past few years, Grinter's has become the go-to place to visit to celebrate summer's transition to fall.

After that stop, get back on board the motorcoach and visit Bluejacket Crossing Winery in Eudora. This beautiful venue, which began production in 2002, has expanded to eight acres. Blue Jacket will welcome you with wine tasting and a catered lunch.
Next, visit Stone Pillar winery for a tasting of their delicious wines as you look out over the field of grapevines. The farm has been in the Hoff family since just after the Civil War and they have been in the wine-making business since 2007. In 2018 they added cider to their menu, so there are many options for you.
Your last (but not least) stop will be at KC Wine Company, a local favorite in Olathe. Enjoy a tasting there and of course they will have their wine slushes available for purchase. What better way to say goodbye to summer? Arrive back at the YMCA around 4:15 p.m.
Tour includes: round trip motorcoach transportation, Grinter?s Sunflower Farm, tastings at three local wineries with souvenir glasses from each, lunch and full glass of wine at Bluejacket Crossing.
