The Blind Horse Hosts Remember & Renew


Bookworm Gardens Selected as Annual Beneficiary of the Eat. Drink. Give. Program

(Kohler, Wis.) May 31, 2018– The Blind Horse Restaurant & Winery hosts the 3rd annual Run With Angels and a day of garden-themed activities at Remember & Renew on June 16. Remember & Renew is both a tribute to those who have passed and a celebration of life and renewal benefiting Bookworm Gardens.

“Run With Angels was created to provide our community with a loving way to memorialize those who have passed and continue to touch our souls as angels among us,” said Thomas Nye, Blind Horse Restaurant and Winery General Manager. “This year, the day will also embrace the beauty and newness of the season with ‘Blind Horse in Bloom’ an afternoon of garden-related activities.”

Bookworm Gardens – Sheboygan’s botanic garden inspired by children’s literature – was recently named the annual beneficiary of the Blind Horse Eat. Drink. Give. Program and is the non-profit event partner of Remember & Renew.

The day commences with the 3rd annual Run With Angels 5K Run/Walk – an inspiring event affording the opportunity to walk or run in someone’s honor and pay tribute to life by joining together for this moving experience. Participants partake in honor of a loved one who has passed and are invited to upload an image of the honoree to create a custom label for a “In Memory Of” (for participants ages 21 and older only). Participants are invited to bring two printed photos of their loved one; one for the Memory Wall and one to carry. Entry fee is $50 which includes race t-shirt, custom-labeled bottle of wine and Blind Horse wine glass. Full details and registration at

Gardening and plantings will be a focus of Blind Horse In Bloom with themed sessions and projects and a showcase for the limited-edition Blind Horse Wine with a floral-inspired label. A limited-edition version of the popular Blind Horse Black Gypsy will be available for purchase that features the original artwork “Bookworm Botanicals” painted by Kathy Blum inspired by Bookworm Gardens. The painting represents the splendors of plant materials and colors. Local artist Blum is a longtime Bookworm Gardens volunteer and artist.

“This painting evokes exactly what Bookworm Gardens encompasses; experiences of joy and awe,” said Blum.

The Blind Horse will donate $20 for each bottle of Blind Horse Black Gypsy Wine to Bookworm Gardens. A limited-supply of the wine will be available for purchase at The Blind Horse Winery (Price per bottle/case).

Unique opportunities abound throughout the Blind Horse In Bloom event including the Creation Station hosted by Bookworm Gardens featuring drop-in opportunities to create inspired crafts and gifts (prices vary). Additionally, the following interactive classes and opportunities will be held:
