Camarillo, CA (PRWEB) March 25, 2013
The Casa Pacifica Angels Wine and Food Festival—Ventura County’s Best Charity Event—will celebrate its 20th year on June 2nd, 2013, from 1:00PM to 5:00PM at California State University Channel Islands’ campus in Camarillo, CA.
The annual event is one of the most popular festivals in the tri-county area, attracting thousands of food lovers, music aficionados, wine and beer connoisseurs, and raises money to benefit the programs and services of Casa Pacifica Centers for Children and Families.
The finest local wineries and breweries pour wines and brews, while local restaurants and catering companies from Santa Barbara to Conejo Valley serve a sampling of their finest dishes.
The Casa Pacifica Angels Wine and Food Festival is hosted once again by the wonderful Zarley and Van Huisen Families and will offer continuous live entertainment, the largest silent auction in Ventura County, and mouth-watering food throughout the day. Last year, the Festival raised more than $368,000 (net). The fundraising goal for this 20th anniversary celebration is to break the $400,000 (net) mark! Casa Pacifica hopes to help fill the $2.6 million gap between its government service contract revenues and the actual costs to provide critical help for abused, neglected, or at-risk children and families in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.
“The Wine & Food Festival has grown substantially from its humble beginnings at the Pierpont Inn in Ventura twenty years ago. Without the generous support of our sponsors, the wonderful participation of so many quality restaurants, wineries, breweries and other food and beverage vendors, and ultimately the enthusiastic attendance of the community over the years, the Wine & Food Festival could not have grown to be one of Ventura County’s premier community events,” said Carrie Hughes, Director of Development & Public Relations at Casa Pacifica. “We are deeply grateful for all the support, past and present, which has helped us reach our goal to abundantly benefit the programs and services that Casa Pacifica provides to our community’s most vulnerable children and families.”
