Catalina Island Women’s Forum hosts “island-style” wine tasting event coming in September

AVALON — On September 15, Catalina Island Women’s Forum (CIWF) will present Catalina Island Wine Festival, a festive fundraising event that blends wine tasting, live music, Catalina’s beautiful South Beach and community.

Catalina Island Wine Festival will be held while the annual Art Festival is on, and will give participants the opportunity to enjoy appetizers and wine tasting, of course. During the event, more than 60 wines will be available for tasting including Rusack. Gourmet appetizers provided by Zest Catering will accompany the tasting as well.

A silent auction will also take place for fundraising and the chance to bid for a variety of prizes.

Tickets for this event will be $80 per person or $70 each for groups of 10 or more. The event will take place from 2-5 p.m. on South Beach in Avalon.

The Log will be giving away two pairs of tickets for this event in a future issue. Be on the lookout for a chance to win!

CIWF is a non-profit organization that was formed in 1995 and aims to make a positive impact on the lives of women in their community, including awarding a $10,000 scholarship to young women attending Avalon High School. Domestic violence prevention, women’s wellness and mentoring are among a few of the services CIWF provides on the island.
