Local nonprofit Circle of Hope has announced the return of one of Santa Clarita’s favorite in-person annual fundraising events, Vine 2 Wine. The community is invited to attend this exclusive interactive wine and beer tasting fundraiser that will be held at the new Porsche Santa Clarita Wünderground Museum on Saturday, Aug. 21.
Located underground below the Porsche Santa Clarita dealership, The Wünderground brings together a significant collection of rare and special vehicles from across the United States to help tell the Porsche story. Guests will immerse themselves in Porsche history and learn how the Porsche family and their team of designers and engineers developed their iconic style from 1948 to today. The star-studded display will feature significant firsts and best from throughout the brand’s history, but also iconic favorites driven by Porsche personalities and celebrities, alongside victorious racing vehicles that prove Porsche’s competition successes.
Guests attending Vine 2 Wine will enjoy a gourmet sit-down dinner, unlimited wine and beer tasting from many of Southern California’s finest and favorite wineries and breweries, and have an opportunity to speak with the vintners and brewers to learn about their wines, beers and spirits. The evening also includes a live and silent auction, music and entrance into the Wünderground museum. VIP tickets are available that also include a VIP cocktail hour with full bar, one included cocktail, assorted passed hors d’oeuvres and VIP parking.
“We are so excited to be able to bring back in such a unique way this signature fundraising experience that has always been a Santa Clarita favorite,” said Alex Hafizi, chairman of the board for Circle of Hope. “This year we have three wonderful chairs for the event, Alison Lindemann, Nola Aronson and Christy Grable, who will be bringing in some exciting and unique features to make this year’s event a whole new experience for all to enjoy.”
All proceeds from the evening support Circle of Hope, a cancer support organization in Santa Clarita that offers emotional, financial, educational and supportive wellness therapies to those in the community affected by cancer.
“We are so honored to have Porsche Santa Clarita offer the Wünderground Museum to Circle of Hope as the location of this year’s Vine 2 Wine,” said Laura Kirchhoff, executive director of Circle of Hope. “The Wünderground is a very unique experience here in Santa Clarita, and pairing that with a gourmet dinner, wine and beer tasting, and other interactive festivities, will surely make for a fun, one-of-a-kind evening and interactive experience, all while supporting a great cause.”
