This event sounds like one not to miss and a portion of the proceeds do benefit Kristi House, which provides a safe healing place for children that are affected by or are victims of sexual abuse--and their families. So, not only would you be able to enjoy great wine selections, local fares and live music on this Saturday afternoon--you could help children in the Miami area heal that may have been direct victims of abuse. This is a great cause to support.
