Wine tasting event to fund educational programs.
Santa Clarita food and wine connoisseurs can look forward to a stimulating evening as the Castaic Education Foundation prepares to host its Sweethearts for Education Wine Tasting Event. Starting at 6 p.m. on February 11, devoted oenophiles and first-time tasters alike will enjoy many gourmet flavors at the Salt Creek Grille.
Appetizers and desserts will accompany the tastings, and various drawings and a raffle will round out the festivities. Proceeds from the event will support the Foundation's efforts to maintain high-quality programs for local students.
"The donations received from events last year helped us install a new running track at North Lake Hills Elementary," said Diane Fiero, chair of the Castaic Education Foundation. "The funds also allow us to grant teachers the needed resources for other educational projects and programs. In these tough budget times, community support is needed more than ever before."
Tickets cost $45 each. Those interested should call Marcela Kocen at 661-702-9551, or email email@example.com  to reserve a spot.
