On January 21, in between rain storms that threatened all of Santa Clarita, over 250 residents stepped out and into a cause: “Pour Into Haiti”.
The brain-child of Roman Weiser (Santa Clarita Valley Vintners and Growers Association), Eve Bushman (writer and marketing) and David Schutz (owner, All Corked Up) a fundraiser was planned and executed in one week. Over $4000 was given that night to Shannon Hoffman and Brendie Bandara of Three Angels Children’s Relief in Haiti.
Besides taking over both front rooms of All Corked Up, guests were also treated to a tour for their tasting in both the temperature controlled wine locker facility and the large retail store. Music was provided by Chris Sobkowich and a limited menu was available.
Wine, original art and raffle items were donated by Steve and Amy Elzer, Chris and Jeannie Carpenter, Michael and Karen Perlis, Shaunna Hoffman, Derrick and Maureen McKaughan, the Santa Clarita Valley Vintners and Growers Association and All Corked Up.
