On Saturday, October 2, 2021, supporters from near and far gathered at Tiss Valley Winery & Vineyard, LLC for a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony in Midway, AL. The ribbon-cutting ceremony was eloquently facilitated and supported by family and friends.

A wine tasting bar was set up to sample available wine flavors.

There were hors d’oeuvres, delicacies, desserts, and a delicious barbeque meal catered by Lee’s BBQ for those in attendance. Kendall Hurt and company were on-site with a live band for musical selections. Southern Belle Missreka provided a 360 photo booth for a memorial photo experience. Melinda Barnes had personalized shirts made for family and friends.

Multi-Media Journalist Ra’shonn Jacques Hurt filmed the memorable event. Sontissa Hurt Nolen, founder, and CEO is a Midway native and is the daughter of proud parents, Michael and Brenda Walker. She is the wife of Curtis Nolan, and together they have three children.
