More than 800 people flocked to the annual Farmville Wine Festival on Saturday — one that broke records in both attendance and fundraising, netting $17,000 to benefit Meals on Wheels of Prince Edward County.

According to Cheryl Gibson, one of the event organizers, the event saw “the largest attendance ever.”

“I think the most we have ever made is around $11,000,” Gibson said.

According to organizers, 100 percent of proceeds from the event goes toward Meals on Wheels.
