Get ready to wine, dine and jive! On Saturday, August 26 you are invited to attend St. Mark’s Summer Classic at St.Mark’s-in-the-Valley Episcopal Church. The classic benefits ongoing programs and the many community outreach works that the Church provides for the Santa Ynez Valley. Longtime parishioner Andrew Firestone will emcee the dinner and auction event which will take place on the stunning grounds.
Proceeds from St. Mark’s Summer Classic support local community programs and services provided by St. Mark’s—including hosting more than 90 area nonprofit and civic organizations, meetings, programs and special events annually. Among many others, St. Mark’s welcomes the Santa Ynez Valley Jewish Community, Food Bank of Santa Barbara County, Arts Outreach, Buellton Senior Center, SYV Humane Society, Veggie Rescue, Solvang Festival Theater, First Five Santa Barbara, support networks, recovery groups and county-wide commission meetings.
Don’t miss out on an evening full of groovy tunes and delicious food. The 2017 St. Mark’s Summer Classic begins at 5:30 p.m. with hors d’oeuvres, wines and time to peruse and bid at the silent auction. Jeff and Janet Olsson of New West Catering will prepare the gourmet foods for the dinner.
