The Imperial Valley Desert Museum's annual wine tasting event, "Art, Music, Wine", has come and gone, and was a tremendous success! We had 162 guests, who enjoyed wine from Baja Wine + Food, hor d'oeuvres from Sobe's Restaurant, music from Wilson Jr High School's orchestra, and an art exhibit featuring the work from the Imperial Valley Artists Collective.
The star of the event were the wines!
"Wow! I was so impressed with the wines from Guadalupe Valley." was one comment.
"I loved all three red wines, but the third one was my favorite." was another.
While sampling wine, the guests were able to participate in a silent auction. The proceeds from both the auction, and the wine tasting went to our National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge Grant. This grant is building our Endowment Fund, which will provide two staff positions when fully funded. The National Endowment for the Humanities matches the money raised 3:1, helping us reach our goal of one million dollars by 2019.
