Enjoy an elegant evening and benefit the Sierra Madre Library at the same time at the 44th annual Friends of the Sierra Madre Library Wine and Cuisine Tasting event on Friday, Feb. 21, 2014. Tickets just went on sale at Sierra Madre Library, the Bottle Shop, Savor the Flavor, and Arnold’s Frontier Hardware in Sierra Madre.

It takes place at Alverno Villa, 675 West Highland Ave., Sierra Madre, Calif., and features more than two dozen vintners providing superb wines and local restaurants offering delectable hors d’oeuvres and desserts. Live music and Magic Castle magicians provide entertainment and the lovely grounds of Alverno provide atmosphere. A silent auction offers artwork, services, tickets to special events, restaurant vouchers and many other items.

Tickets to the premier event are $80 and allow early admission at 6 p.m. and a souvenir wine charm. A sommelier will give a special wine tasting for those at the premier event, a chocolatier will provide chocolates to be paired with the red wines, and a local restaurant will offer hors d’oeuvres to be paired with the white wines. Tickets to the main event are $60 and provide admission at 7 p.m. Either one would make a great Christmas gift for late shoppers or a hostess gift at those seasonal parties.

The Friends of the Sierra Madre Library is a non-profit organization and all proceeds benefit the Sierra Madre Library. For more information visit our website at, or call the library at 626 355-7186.
