Santa Clarita Community Rallies to Support WineFest
More news: The one-day event benefits local charity the Michael Hoefflin Foundation and has already garnered generous support from the local community.
“We were asked to return shortly after our first fest last year, which was successful. We listened to the community and made the changes that were requested – namely a bigger space to accommodate a growing crowd and more parking to add convenience”, explains WineFest Owner/CEO Dr. Joel M. Fisher. “We found our answers at the Bridgeport Marketplace, which is working closely with us to create a satisfying day. We’re expecting well over 1000 people and we’ll be ready.”
But that’s not all. Community leaders such as publisher Moe Hafizi has generously offered support early on. Hometown Radio Station AM 1220’s Carl Goldman reached out to also offer services as well. Many of the stores and restaurants in Bridgeport and surrounding areas have extended helping hands. Salons, art, music, even fine jewelry has expressed interest.
“When Santa Clarita says they’re going to help, they really step up their game and deliver. In response, our team is working hard to create a memorable experience. I’m excited for what we’re going to deliver to this proud community”, proclaims Fisher.
