 The Tastes of Taste of 'Dena

There is only one more week until Taste of 'Dena, the party you do NOT want to miss in Altadena this month! The final planning for this fundraiser on Saturday, September 23 from 7:00pm-9:30pm is coming together beautifully, and while we don't want to give away too many of the fun things planned that night, we DO want you to get an early taste of the culinary talents that will be present at the event. The following wineries, breweries, and local eateries will be preparing tasting flights and specially crafted amuse-bouches for our guests!

Oh, and did we mention our fabulous door prize? Every guest at Taste of 'Dena gets to take home a commemorative, stemless wine glass!

Remember, ticket prices will increase to $60 the day of the event, Saturday, September 23, so buy your tickets now at the normal price of $50 and save yourself the extra 10 bucks!

 Buy your tickets to Taste of 'Dena today!
