Ellwood House will host its Wine on the Terrace fundraiser Sept. 14.

The annual Wine on the Terrace benefit for the nonprofit Ellwood House Association will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday.

Inboden’s, a local specialty food market and wine merchant, is partnering with Ellwood House for the event.

Visitors may enjoy a selection of wines as they listen to music performed by Craig Mathey. Guests may take a self-guided tour through the first floor of the mansion and enjoy dessert and coffee. A silent auction is planned throughout the evening.

Tickets are $50 a person and may be purchased at Inboden’s, the Ellwood House Visitor Center or online at www.ellwoodhouse.org/donatepurchase. Only 200 tickets will be sold. Checks may be made payable to Ellwood House Association and mailed to Ellwood House Museum, 509 N. First St., DeKalb, IL 60115.

For information, call the Ellwood House Museum office at 815-756-4609.
