Are you interested in enjoying delicious food and drinks while contributing to a great cause?
Well, get prepared because the 2015 Celebrity Cruises Great Wine Festival is coming!
The event will be held on Saturday, May 2, 2015 at the Great Park in Irvine, California within historic Hangar 244 from 2:30-5:00 PM PST with a special VIP hour from 1:30-2:30 PM
This annual event, now in its 5th year, was created by the Legal Aid Society of Orange County (LASOC) to increase awareness and raise funds to support LASOC’s legal services and education programs to low-income individuals and families struggling to gain self-sufficiency. LASOC has been serving Orange County and southeast Los Angeles County, as Community Legal Services (CLS), for over 55 years. Each day LASOC/CLS provides free and low cost civil legal services to more than 200 people.

In addition to unlimited tastings and live musical entertainment the event will include an online silent auction that will allow participants to bid on desirable items prior to and during the event using their own smartphone. This feature will allow us to promote our event and the businesses that provide silent auction items not just to event attendees, but across the county.
Last year, the event featured more than 40 award-winning restaurants, premium wineries and other food related businesses. Here are of the photos I took last year at the event.
