Second Annual Wine Tasting Fundraiser

On Saturday, May 31 we hosted our Second Annual Wine Tasting Fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. In Mission Viejo we participate annually in the Relay for Life and along with my hubby and my BFF's we throw quite a party! This year we had twice as many guests attend - 75 and also had a wonderful band play! We had an abundance of really fabulous wines donated by many good friends; Schug, Guilliams, Silverado, Buena Vista, Flora Springs, Signorello, Rodney Strong, Berringer, Ocho and many more. Our friends from Coppola also donated some really fabulous silent auction baskets. We prepped food all morning and set up the yard - it looked really awesome and we did not want the night to end! We raised $2,700. for our cause in memory of our dearest BFF Judy - we lost her a few years ago to melanoma and since then have relayed in her memory. Her mom and dad were at the event again this year as well as her husband Fritz. Cheers!
The hosts! Jeff, Erin, Dar, Jill & Debra

A few of our silent auction items; signed bottles and baskets!

The "line-up" of wines was amazing! No spit bucket - there would be no spitting tonight!

Don't you just love my canopy! It was made for me by this talented lady!

Our check-in table; raffle tickets were given out and guests guessed how many corks were in the wine bucket - there were a 119!

Our desserts were yummy! Cupcakes, brownies and delectible little petit fours!
