The LCHS Spartan Boosters will hold their annual Winter Fest, a party featuring fine wines, spirits and beers for auction on Saturday, Feb. 3, at the Thursday Club from 5:30-9 p.m. Proceeds from the event will help fund Boosters’ support of kids in grades 7-12 at La Cañada High School.
Boosters President Chris Clarkson is inviting everyone in the community (ages 21 and older) who loves fine wine and spirits, high-end beer and gourmet pizzas to enjoy a great party in the Boosters tradition.
“We’re excited to host Spartan Boosters’ annual Winter Fest wine, beer and spirits auction to support academic, athletic and extra-curricular activities at LCHS 7-12. I hope La Cañadans will come spend Super Bowl Eve with us at a great party and to help us to keep providing opportunities for our kids.”
Winter Fest Chair Craig Miller and his committee have put together a spectacular assortment of fine wines, beers and spirits for attendees to bid on at both live and silent auctions. Just a few of the most attractive items that will be up for auction include: 100-point-rated 2002 Bond Estates Melbury Red, Napa Valley; 95-point-rated “Cellar Selection” 2010 Felsina Colonia Chianti Classico “Gran Selezione,” Italy; and two cases of the highly coveted and scarce Pliny the Elder IPA, from Russian River Brewing Company.
Tickets for the event are $75 in advance and $85 at the door. Ticket price includes wood-fired artisan pizzas for dinner, along with wines and beers. Purchase your tickets online at lchsboosters.org.
The Thursday Club recently received a California State Resolution from state Sen. Anthony Portantino. Celebrating 105 years, the club attests to the members’ efforts to reach out to the community to assist charitable and nonprofit groups to further their education. The resolution also recognizes 65 years of Les Fleurettes debutantes, who study and train in order to realize their responsibility to themselves, family and community.
The Thursday Club recently held its annual fashion show and luncheon, this year called “Run for the Roses.” The fundraiser supports the Scholarship Foundation Fund, which awards scholarships to local high school seniors. The Centennial Garden was beautifully decorated in a red rose Kentucky Derby theme with more than 200 guests attending.
Yvonne Marchosky was chair and Cindi McIntosh-Behr co-chair of the event, while Sheri Morton was vendor chair and Alison McQuay was in charge of guest management.
