Last weekend Squaw Valley played host to a fundraising event that helped benefit the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe.
One week later, it’s the Can Do Multiple Sclerosis (MS) that will be raising money at the scenic Village at Squaw Valley.
Wine lovers can enjoy early fall in the Sierra at the 25th annual Alpen Wine Festival, held on Sunday, Sept. 1 from 2-5 p.m. All proceeds from the festival benefit Can Do Multiple Sclerosis (MS), a national nonprofit organization sponsoring lifestyle empowerment programs for people with MS and their support partners.
For a $40 donation, guests will enjoy wine from more than 30 Northern California vineyards. Lady & the Tramps and Milton Merlos will perform on two different stages at the outdoor festival.
Among the featured wineries will be Dogwood Cellars, Gamble Family Vineyards, Arbios Cellars/Praxis Cellars, Twisted Rivers, Bjorn & Gauge Wines, Lang and Reed and Sarita Estates Vineyard.
Amidst the background of wine and music, guests can peruse the silent auction and raffle, which includes Squaw Valley lodging packages, shopping sprees, restaurant gift certificates, lift tickets, art and unique wines by the bottle and case.
Last year, the Alpen Wine Festival raised $18,000 for Can Do MS. Fundraising events like Alpen Wine Festival allow Can Do MS to continue to bring lifestyle empowerment programs to Northern California for people living with MS.
Tickets for the event will be available on site starting at 1 p.m. on Sunday or in advance with online purchase at www.mscando.org.
The majority of wines served at the event will be available for purchase at Uncorked in The Village at Squaw Valley.
