Drink Wine for Homeless Aid

Who would ever have thought that you could drink wine and by doing that you could benefit a homeless person in Los Angeles? The Rotary Club. The first City of Angels Wine Fest will be this Monday, May 31, 2010 at the Music Plaza downtown from noon until 5pm. The net proceeds from the tickets ($65 in advance online or $75 at the door, and only $5 entry fee for designated drivers) will go entirely to the Volunteers of America Greater Los Angeles' downtown homeless service center which will serve up to 1,800 homeless men and women. The organization provides services to the elderly, veterans and families to help meet their basic needs and empower them to lead more productive lives.

Wineries like Au Bon Climat, Firestone, and Grgich Hills, will be participating along with about 27 others. Food will be offered by the Pinot restaurants, Kendall's Brasserie and Nick & Stef's Steakhouse, and there will be live entertainment, a silent auction and a “Living Mural” project.

This is a day and a way to both feel like an angel and be one at the same time, just make sure you designate a driver or take a cab home.
