Assistance League will celebrate their autumn fundraising event, Sunset in the Vineyard, Sunday, November 2nd, from 2:00 – 5:00 PM at Compa Vineyard and homes of Jeannie, Chris and Tim Carpenter. This occasion will be one to remember with samplings of a variety of wines, beers, cheeses and culinary delights. Many Santa Clarita private vineyards and wine makers will be represented, along with De Robertis Family Artisan Cheeses, VNTBC Nano Brewery, Copper Hill Brewery and The Speakeasy Bakery. Music performed by Wheelhouse, featuring Steve Dole, Jeff and Melanie Meyer, Matt Lincoln and Warren George.
Sunset in the Vineyard chairs Cheryl Dellepiane and Cheryl Gray promise an unforgettable afternoon celebrating our local ‘garagiste’ and commercial artisans. Guests will taste and savor wine, craft brews, cheeses, and breads directly from the artisans. Chef Cindy Schwanke and Michelle Razzano, along with their talented students from College of the Canyons Institute of Culinary Education (iCUE) will be making delicious pizza from Tim’s wood-fired oven. A perfect afternoon!
Assistance League Santa Clarita, organized in 1989 by local women, was chartered in 1993 and has grown to 146 members. A chapter of National Assistance League, it is a nonprofit, nonpolitical, nonsectarian and IRS 501(c)(3) service organization. Funds raised from Sunset in the Vineyard benefit Assistance League programs exclusively in the Santa Clarita Valley. Our signature program, “Operation School Bell®” supplies new clothing and shoes, to school children in need. We are currently holding our shopping event for these students, who are referred by school district personnel. We assisted more than 2,600 children last year and have expanded the program to the junior high level.
