37th Annual Wine Tasting Event Benefits Martinez Early Childhood Center, Inc.

May 02, 2016 01:38PM ● Published by Elena Hutslar

The Martinez Early Childhood Center (MECC) is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization, dedicated to providing high quality care and education to approximately 120 children each year, ages 0 to 5 years old. Contracted with the California Department of Education, MECC is a Nationally Accredited Education program.

Every year, the Parent Advisory Committee and MECC board members, along with the dedicated MECC staff, host a wine tasting event to raise funds to benefit the children and families of MECC. This year’s event is Friday, May 20, 5-9pm, at the Pleasant Hill Community Center. Local artists, merchants, and citizens are very generous with donations for our silent auction and raffle. The enjoyable evening includes fine wines donated by local wineries and wine makers, live music from local musicians, and an abundance of delicious appetizers and on-site barbecue by Danny Pellegrini and Keith Fergusson. Proceeds directly benefit the children's program. This year’s special sponsor is the “Express Your Selfie” photo booth, donated by Akeson Design. Come and taste some wine, sample delicious small plates, enjoy live music, bid on valuable prizes, and get your “selfie” photos taken with friends, old and new!
