Fun and fund raising Saturday in Twain Harte. The annual Twain Harte Ala Carte food and wine tasting is the Soroptimists International of Twain Harte´s way of raising funds for needy local charities and non-profit groups.
Event chairwoman Stephanie McCaffrey says they hoped to gather $17,000 from the outdoor event with more than 325 people attending.
McCaffrey says funds go to many places in the Mother Lode, including Summerville High student scholarships, the Comfort Project, and Soroptimists´ Breast Health Center, among many others.
Fifteen wineries and 25 restaurants were represented that evening. The sold out event also featured silent and live auctions.
