A CHARITY wine-tasting evening raised about £500 for the Kirklees Mayor's charities.
The event was held at Huddersfield Town Hall and featured a 50-strong audience trying to guess wines in a Call My Bluff-style test.
The three panellists were former Huddersfield Royal Infirmary surgeon Geoff Bunch, Keys restaurant co-owner David Ridgway and Kirkwood Hospice fundraiser Jane Dutton.
They described the wines they tasted - along with plenty of knockabout humour - and the audience then had to guess the correct one.
The evening was hosted by Rob Hoult, from Hoults Wine Merchants, of Viaduct Street, Huddersfield, which provided the wines.
Mayor's Consort Barry Fearnley said: "Rob was fantastic and it was an excellent evening. People went away knowing a lot more about wine than when they came."
Raffle prizes included a bottle of Moet et Chandon champagne and two glasses, Burberry aftershave and a bath towel, a candle shaped like a bottle of wine, perfumes and an Easter egg.
The money will be split between the two charities, Kirkwood Hospice and The Laura Crane Trust.
Mayor Margaret Fearnley and Barry are organising other events to boost the charities. The next will be a fashion show at the Mercedes car showroom on Leeds Road, Huddersfield.
It will be on Wednesday, May 10, at 7pm and feature retailers including the Chris Antich Collection, R and B Children's Designerwear, Cinderella at Huddersfield hats and shoes shop Le Bonnet, Silver Halo jewellery, Options of Lindley, Pure of Lindley and Honley, Cutting Edge Technology and designers from the Textile and Fashion Design Incubator. Huddersfield Giants rugby league players are also expected to strut their stuff on the catwalk. Tickets cost £10 - including a wine reception - and are available from any of the organisations taking part.
