Support Komen in Huntington Beach this Sunday

Support Komen in Huntington Beach this Sunday

The weather and the beach are two reasons we love Orange County. This Sunday, October 11, you can enjoy both AND help the Komen Orange County Affiliate. Be at The Shorebreak Hotel at The Strand in Huntington Beach from 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday for their monthly art and cultural event. Admission is $10 per person, with all fees benefitting Komen.

You need to know that The Shorebreak Hotel is located just off the beach where Pacific Coast Highway meets the Huntington Pier. Great spot! The event will feature art from local galleries and artists, as well as live music. Wine will be provided by Coppola Diamond Series and light appetizers provided by the new restaurant Zimzala, featuring Mediterranean-influenced cuisine. Your admission fee includes two wine tickets and one plate of appetizers. If you purchase art or a meal from Zimzala, additional donations will be made to Komen.

 The forecast high for Sunday in Huntington Beach is 71 degrees. Sunset – with a pink glow – will be at 6:28 p.m.  See you on Sunday from 3 to 6 p.m. at The Deck at The Shorebreak Hotel in Huntington Beach to enjoy life and help Komen. For more information about how to get to The Shorebreak Hotel, visit www.theshorebreakhotel.com.

Wine Tasting for Komen

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!
