5401 Graham Hill Road  | Bret Harte Hall | Felton, CA | August 9th, 2015 | 1-5PM

Tasting Under The Redwoods is a benefit event for the Valley Churches United Missions featuring food, wine and beer tasting, a silent auction, and live jazz. Guests will experience a showcase of tastes and flavors from 25 of the area's popular restaurants, 10 wineries, and 4 craft breweries.  Specialties include: mini-eggrolls, cocktail prawns, crepes, cheese/bacon stuffed mushrooms, cranberry glazed meatballs, smoked salmon, cheesecakes, pastries, and much more.

For over 30 years, the non-profit Valley Churches United Missions has been serving the San Lorenzo Valley and surrounding communities, providing supplemental food to low-income households throughout the year.  VCUM also provides emergency disaster assistance, crisis rent, mortgage and utility assistance, as well as medical assistance to qualifying clients.  Well known for their Christmas project as well as special Thanksgiving, Easter and school backpack programs, VCUM reaches out to over 500 households each month.  All this is done with no government funding, over 200 volunteers, and a staff of less than three paid positions.

KSCO radio personality Rosemary Chalmers; KPIG's Sleepy John Sandidge; and 5th District Supervisor Bruce McPherson are among those pouring wine and serving bites.  Soul Doubt, a popular Santa Cruz jazz & rhythm and blues band, will perform.  

Major sponsor of “Tasting Under The Redwoods” is KSCO/AM1080. Supporting sponsors include Union Bank; Frank Murphy Team/Real Estate Consultants; and Liberty Bank.
