By ED FRANKS ( , Pine Island Eagle

This Sunday, Feb. 18, from 2-5 p.m., the Matlacha Hookers will host its annual wine tasting event at Alden Pines Country Club.

"We're calling it 'Peace, Love and Wine'," Madam Julia Simpson said. "This year we'll take you back to a 'groovy' time remembering the '60' and '70s."

The event is orchestrated by the Matlacha Hookers to benefit the Beacon of HOPE's senior program.

"Every year we have a new theme and this year everyone will dress in the clothing styles of the 1960s and 1970s," Simpson said. "These were the decades of bell bottoms, mini-skirts and go-go boots.

"Plus we will have our famous silent auction, music from the' 60s and '70s by local musician Tommy Barr and there's also a one-of-a-kind artwork donated by local artist Mel Meo that will be auctioned off."

Each ticket purchased for $35 includes entrance into the event, six wine tasting selections, hors d'oeuvres, sweets made by C.W. Fudge and a complimentary handpainted wine glass.
