Casa Pacifica is excited to hold the 19th annual Casa Pacifica Angels Wine & Food Festival on Sunday, June 3rd, 2012, from 1:00pm-4:00pm at California State University Channel Islands’ campus in Camarillo.
Voted Best Cultural Festival in Ventura County for the last four years running, the annual Casa Pacifica Angels Wine & Food Festival is one of the area’s premiere wine and food events, with all proceeds benefiting the Casa Pacifica Centers for Children and Families. Complete with continuous live entertainment and the largest silent auction in Ventura County, the Festival offers young and old alike the chance to taste their way through mouthwatering treats from the finest restaurants, caterers, bakeries, and specialty shops from Santa Barbara to Conejo Valley. The event also features many renowned wineries and vineyards from throughout California’s rich wine-producing regions, as well as several award-winning breweries.
Last year the Festival raised more than $300,000(net) to support the work of one of the community’s most dedicated charities. Thanks to the ongoing support of its gracious sponsors, the Casa Pacifica Festival is back again, this time with the ambitious goal of raising $375,000(net) to help fill the growing $2.6 million gap between government revenues and actual costs to provide critical help for abused, neglected, or at-risk children and families in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.
Generously hosted by the Zarley and Van Huisen Families, the Casa Pacifica Angels Wine & Food Festival will be revved up by Ventura County’s favorite emcee, Bruce Barrios as well as a strong lineup of celebrities. Sponsorship Opportunities are still available, ranging from $1,500 to $20,000. Visit the Festival website to sign up as a sponsor or Festival exhibitor or consider being part of this exciting event by donating an item to our silent auction. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to place your name in front of thousands of potential customers!
