Taste wine and nibble yummy restaurant appetizers – while raising dollars for the Komen Orange County Race for the Cure. Talk about a win-win! There are a few $35 tickets remaining for a Wine Tasting Benefit on Tuesday, October 6, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
The wines to be tasted are from Fleming Jenkins Vineyards, founded by Olympian Peggy Fleming and her husband. Peggy, who won Olympic gold in 1968 for women’s figure skating, is a breast cancer survivor who champions the importance of early detection. (Always a high scorer herself, her 2007 Chardonnay scored 93 points by the Wine Enthusiast.)
The event is the smart idea of Race for the Cure team “Think Pink” #2231, and the profits from the wine tasting will be donated to Komen Orange County in support of their team. The Wine Tasting Benefit will be at The Rooftop Sky Garden, 3161 Michelson Avenue, in Irvine. For tickets, contact Gail Ross or Annalyn Goodwin at 949-451-3800.
Race Teams and individuals have until October 16 to raise pledge dollars for awards and incentive prizes. Don’t stop now!
