The Pasadena-Foothills Association of Realtors Charitable Foundation kicks off the summer with its first fundraiser of the year: the 27th annual Charity Wine Tasting and Auction Event. The event is from 5-9 p.m. on Thursday, June 21, at the home of John Fairbanks and Ray Hayes in Altadena. Proceeds will benefit local charities and student scholarships.
Attendees can take part in a silent and live auction, and participate in a wine toss and other surprises and giveaways. Guests will enjoy wine, champagne and hors d’oeuvres in a shared passion for community organizations.
“Each year the Charitable Foundation works to improve our events with the sole purpose of having more to give to local charities each year,” said Foundation chair Deborah Maxson. “The PFAR Charitable Foundation is 100% volunteers who do all these events because it is our duty to help our community. We have been fortunate enough to get positive feedback from our charities, and I know that is what keeps each of us working so hard each year.”
Tickets are $50 at pfarcf.org, events@pfar.org or by calling (626) 795-2455.
“The Foundation is dedicated to uplifting our local charities, many of which are small, and the sum we can offer makes a difference in their programs,” Maxson said. “We are extremely pleased that this has continued for more than 25 years, and we have been able to donate more than $1 million to local charities. As local Realtors and affiliates, we see the difference, which is why it has been such a success for so many years.”
The Charitable Foundation is accepting sponsors and donation of auction items. Those interested in donating can contact event co-chairs at roberta.dominguez@HomeStreet.com and michelegiffin@gmail.com.
