Our Fundraiser ~ 3rd Annual!

I think I have finally recovered from our fundraising event! This was our 3rd annual Wine Tasting at our home. We raised $5,500. for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life in Mission Viejo. Our team Judy's Angels was started 7 years ago after we lost one of my BFF's to melanoma. We could not have had such a successful event without the support and generosity of so many...we were truly honored to have the Winemakers below come down and be a part of this. Jeff Munsey from Sort This Out Cellars, Darren Procsal from Atlas Peak and Jeff Stewart of Buena Vista - they donated their fabulous wines and amazing visits to their wineries! My BFF's Jill and Darlene - we co-hosted this event along with my hubby and our BFF Debra
Chuck and his wife Susan (my husband works for Chuck) were there to lend a hand. The smoked gouda cheese he was slicing was addicting on the warm cranberry bread.
Chuck kept asking me for sharp knives...
Just some of the wines we were pouring
This is Debra - check out her new blog - she's an amazing artist.
We prepared all of the food ourselves; bruschetta, olives, cucumbers with feta cheese, cheeses galore.
Skewars with buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes and fresh basil and of course more cheese!
It was and exhausting and emotional night we will never forget - 80 + guests in my yard and it looked so beautiful!
