The PARC Foundation’s 3rd Annual Magic on the Urban Wine Trail fundraiser presented by Mission Linen Supply promises to be a fun-filled afternoon on Sunday, April 19, 3:00-6:00pm, at the historic Carrillo Recreation Center Ballroom (100 East Carrillo Street, Santa Barbara). Guests will enjoy wine tasting with wineries from the Santa Barbara Urban Wine Trail; the first ever PARC Gallery featuring art from Francis Dawson, Tajo McBurnie, and other selected local artists; music by piano virtuoso Patrick Maiani and zany accordionist Michael Gutin; delicious food; and a great silent auction … all for a great cause.
A scrumptious selection of appetizers and desserts will served by the teens and mentor chefs of the City’s successful Youth Culinary Arts Program, which gives youth job training and teaches them about nutrition and healthy cooking, helping them develop skills that will last a lifetime.
Proceeds from the event will support the Youth Culinary Arts Program and the Parks and Recreation Camp Scholarship Fund for under-served children. The 2013 Magic on the Urban Wine Trail Event raised enough funds to support the Culinary Art Program and sent 63 children to summer camps, many of them for the first time.
The list of wineries pouring at the event has grown every year since 2013’s inaugural event and now features 15 wineries from the Santa Barbara Urban Wine Trail: Carr Vineyards & Winery, Cebada Winery, Cottonwood Canyon Winery, Fox Wine Company, Grassini Family Vineyards, Happy Canyon Vineyards, Jaffurs Wine Cellars, Jamie Slone Wines, Oreana Winery, Pali Wine Company, Sanford Winery, Santa Barbara Winery, Silver Wines, Summerland Winery, and Whitcraft Winery!
Registration for the event is $45 in advance (through April 18th) or $60 at the door. Advance registration may be purchased online via the PARC Foundation’s website (parcsb.org) or by calling Rob at (805) 564-5425.
