Stomping Grapes for EFF in Indiana

Earlier this month, we received an exciting letter in the mail from the Vevay, Indiana Tourism Board.

During our 38th Swiss Wine Festival (one of Indiana's Top 10 Festivals) held this August 27-30, we will be debuting a new event. Our First Annual "Media Celebrity Grape Stomp for Charity" will feature on-air celebrities from television and radio, newspaper columnists, professional bloggers and freelance writers. Celebrities from Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky will go toe-to-toe in a wooden barrel of grapes competing to "out-stomp" their competition in hopes of winning a check to their favorite charity! First prize is $1000, Second is $500 with Third at $250.

The event will take place at noon at Paul Ogle Riverfront Park in Vevay, Ind., at the official grape stomping stage.

I am excited to inform you that Michael Wigren of WKID-FM FROGGY Radio in Vevay, Ind. has selected [the Electronic Frontier Foundation] as his charity should he be one of the Top 3 winning Media Celebrity Grape Stompers.

EFF sends many thanks to Michael Wigren and wishes him the best of luck on the grape stomping stage! If you're reading this from near Vevay, Indiana, consider stopping by the Stomp for Charity to show your support for digital civil liberties.
