ENC holds Wine Walk fundraiser, exceeds goal

The Environmental Nature Center (ENC) held their 4th Wine Walk fundraiser on July 30. The ENC surpassed their goal of $15,000 and raised more than $17,000, making this the most successful Wine Walk to date. Funds raised will assist the ENC in continuing to provide transformative experiences at the Environmental Nature Center, ENC Nature Preschool and Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary.

Live pop/jazz music was provided by SideNote Keys/Bass near the ENC’s stream

The ENC collaborated with Hi-Time Wine Cellars to provide guests with a fabulous afternoon of wine tasting. Guests walked through the Center and stopped at wine tasting stations along the trails to taste wines from Dry Creek Vineyards, Jayson Wines, Far Niente, Dreyfus Ashby, Wine Warehouse, Rombauer and more. Wines being poured were available for purchase through Hi-Time Wine Cellars and Hi Time is donating a portion of wine sales generated at the event. Nearly doubling last year’s sales, 172 bottles sold this year.

Small bites were provided by Above All Catering. Live pop/jazz music was provided by SideNote Keys/Bass near the ENC’s stream. Guests ended their walk with Kean Coffee and dessert.

An online auction featuring more than 50 amazing items and experiences raised more than $5,000. Those interested in donating for the ENC’s next online auction, to be held the week before this year’s Fall Faire on October 16, can donate at https://encenter.org/auction-donation-form.

Environmental Nature Center is located at 1601 W. 16th St., Newport Beach. For more information, visit www.encenter.org.
