St. Aidan’s Episcopal Church holding Sunday fundraiser


St. Aidan’s Episcopal Church is holding its fifth annual wine tasting festival on Sunday, Oct. 9. The festival will feature a variety of local wines, casino-style games, live music and an auction. Proceeds will benefit the church’s outreach ministries, including supporting the education needs of Skid Row homeless children, repairing homes in Native American communities and lending assistance to children whose parents are in prison. The event will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday at the St. Aidan’s campus across from Paradise Cove on Pacific Coast Highway. For more information or tickets, contact the St. Aidan’s church office at (310)-457-7966 or email

The suggested donation per ticket is $50, which includes $100 in casino chips, a souvenir glass for sampling the wines and hors d’oeuvres from Pierre’s Catering. A number of local and California wines will be available for tasting, including Malibu Family Wines, Rusack, San Antonio, Bear Paw, Stony Hill and Chateau Margene, among others.

Guests will compete for raffle prizes at blackjack, roulette and poker tables. A silent auction will feature a luxury Rancho La Quinta vacation package and a one-week stay at a Point Dume condo. Onsite childcare will be provided at the event at no cost.
