For generations Wells Fargo has supported community programs and organizations through generous grants and by sponsoring charitable activities. News that they have joined forces with philanthropic PR firm Barcelona Enterprises comes as no surprise, and is right in line with the financial institutions rich history of generous giving.

"Wells Fargo is proud to sponsor the Calabasas Malibu Wine & Food Festival again for another year," said Reza Razzaghipour, Wells Fargo community bank regional president for the Pacific Coast. "We support our local communities, businesses and neighbors, so when given the opportunity to give back and spread our philanthropic wings, Wells Fargo is first in line to do so. May this event be successful and the thousands of participating guests take part responsibly."

The Calabasas Malibu Wine & Food Festival is no stranger to charity as well. The recurring event has offered guests the opportunity to enjoy the finest artisan crafted spirits and gourmet fare that local businesses have to offer, while making a positive difference in the community. Event organizer and Barcelona Enterprises CEO Alan Semsar has made numerous contributions to the Southern California community that the festival serves, including a sizable cash contribution to the local high school.

"When we began this festival, I had hoped that we would be able to give a little something back to the community as a way of showing how much Barcelona Enterprises appreciates the support we've gotten. Over the years we have seen this small event grow into something really wonderful: a convergence of fun and giving. Partnering with Wells Fargo is the next step in our evolution of community outreach, and we are really excited at the prospect of all the things that we can accomplish together!" Semsar stated.
