The annual Wine in the Pines Festival features an assortment of fine wines and beers from all over California.  There is also a variety of foods from the surrounding areas that include European finger foods, gourmet pizza and some good ole fashion BBQ.  And of course no festival is complete without music! You will find it loud enough to enjoy some local favorites yet soft enough to set the mood.  So whether you are in the mood to sit and sip or dance and drink this wonderful event will cater to all walks of life, and if that isn’t enough they showcase some beautiful art work for you to browse.  So while you enjoy your time in this glorious setting just know that you will also be helping out a worthy cause because all of the proceeds benefit the Relay for Life of the American Cancer Society.

We all know someone who has been affected by cancer and how devastating it can be.   Families that have faced that difficult road wish there was more that could have been done to help their mom, dad, friends and co-workers.  Fortunately, we have amazing charities like Relay for Life that work non-stop to help raise not only money for cancer treatments but awareness and support for friends and families.  They have raised millions of dollars for ground breaking cancer research programs, Hundreds of thousands to help provide a place for families to stay while supporting their loved ones during treatments and over a million dollars in network support including phone calls and online chats to patients and caregivers seeking information and support.  Relay for life brings awareness to all communities and all stages of cancer.  They are on a mission to save lives, celebrate life and continue to fight for a world without cancer.
