“We skipped a couple years because the economy has been so discouraging, but our schools are receiving less funding than ever before, so we decided to jump back in,” said Wendy Herman, president of the Brentwood Union School District Education Foundation. “Our goal is to raise $50,000 and distribute the funds evenly to the 10 schools in our district. This year our focus is on literacy, and each individual school will be able to apply the funds in whatever way serves the students of that particular school the best.”
Supporters of the event include local wineries and restaurants such as Bloomfield Vineyards, Tamayo Family Vineyards and Enos Family Vineyard, all of which will be pouring samples of favorite varietals. Hannah Nicole Vineyards will offer barrel tasting as well as sampling at the wine bar. Other participating wineries include Cline Cellars of Sonoma, plus Wente Winery and Tamas Estates of Livermore.
In addition to wine, guests will be sampling delicacies from Scottie’s/Shutters Brasserie, Brentwood Fine Meats, Discovery Bay Steakhouse, Shirasoni, Brentwood Spice and Olive Oil, Sweeney’s Grill & Bar, Prevot’s Oyster Bar & Grill, Vic Stewart’s, TLCakes, Pho Vietnam, Willy’s Bagels and Blends and Farmer’s Daughter.
Upon arrival, guests will be serenaded by the best musicians from each of the district’s three middle schools and greeted by the district’s principals. Guests also receive a keepsake wine glass and can stay and dance long after the sun goes down.
