Hundred's of people came out to the inaugural event.

People could try out more than 80 varieties of wine and 20 different craft beers.

All the money raised will go towards services the Boys and Girls Club provides to children in the Peoria area.

"Everybody likes a glass of beer or wine, especially when the weather is still a bit cruddy outside," said Cumulus's Event Manager Chris Koller. :" It's tough to find something to do. It's nice to have an event inside."

The is the first year Cumulus and the firefighters hosted the wine tasting event.
