The event below is the work of several people, including yours truly: WiSH Education Foundation board members Marlee Laufer, Amy Daniels and Gail Pinkser, Volunteer Coordinator Claudia Sheridan and Eve Wine 101 Consultant Michael Perlis. We hope that you can join us for a very special evening:
Imagine entering the new jewel of Santa Clarita Valley landmarks – the two-story Old Town Newhall Library – after-hours to taste wines in private “study” rooms, being treated to wine paired foods from the best local chefs and perusing silent auction items while overlooking downtown Newhall’s twinkle-lit main street. That’s what guests will find Saturday, April 13, 2013 from 7–10 p.m.
One hundred percent of the ticket sales and auction directly supports programs in all the Junior and High schools that make up the Hart School District.
Some of the early bird donators include the leading importer of South American wines whose portfolio now includes other imported and domestic wines, TGIC; known for their Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, Lompoc’s Loring Wine Company; making old world style Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, Fiddlehead Cellars; “Pioneering Santa Barbara winemaking since 1977”, Ken Brown Wines; Chardonnay and something special selected for our auction, Iron Horse Vineyards; Craft beers will be provided by Wolf Creek Brewery; and a special treat: locally made wine from Stephen Hemmert Vineyards and Kerry and Susie Clark’s Two Hearts Vineyard.
More donations of wine, spirits, food and auction items have generously been offered from our local Pulchella Winery, Ventura Limoncello, Del Dotto Winery, Papapietro Perry Winery, Wildflour Gourmet Baking Company, Robert Biale Vineyards, Bagrationi Sprakling wine from the Republic of Georgia, Culinary Wonders (formerly known as Kitchen Wizards), Regusci Winery, Edna Valley Vineyard, Gagnon Cellars and from Leona Valley Vineyard’s Culinary Director, Dusti Patterson.
The number of ticket sales will be limited to guarantee each of our guests an exclusive experience. At the end of the evening all guests will receive a special gift bag with special offers from our special vendors. Ticket price is $75 and available now through http://wishscv.org/event-detail.php?ID=876. Adults over 21 only, please.

The WiSH Education Foundation, a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization, was established with a group of local community leaders and public school advocates to raise additional funds for the Hart School District to maintain its high quality programs during this challenging time of state budget cuts.
