Friendly Center’s 6th Annual Evening D’Vine Wine Tasting Fundraiser, Orange CA

I love a good cause, but when there's wine tasting involved, then I'm a real believer. This sounds like a great event that I wanted to share with you because it's for a local cause, and it truly is a good one. Better yet, it's at Opus Italian Restaurant and as I said, there'll be wine tasting... The 6th Annual Evening D'Vine Fundraiser is an event to raise funds for the Friendly Center, a dynamic resource center in Orange dedicated to improving the lives of families in need through immediate aid and a variety of educational and life skill programs. Partnering with Opus Restaurant in Orange, the event will include wine, appetizers, a raffle drawing, and a silent auction. For reservations, please contact them at (714) 771-5300.
