One of the Grand Valley's largest wine tasting events takes place this weekend and also supports a good cause. Saturday night is the 16th Annual Viva el Vino event in grand junction.
A number of local wines will be there to enjoy, as well as some great gourmet food. The Junior Service League will put on the event, which will feature live music from “Casual Conspiracy”, as well as a silent auction.
Organizers raised $32,000 in 2004 and are hoping to raise $40,000 this year. All of the proceeds from the event will go to local non–profit agencies.
The event will be at the Double Tree Hotel on Saturday from 6:30 to 9:30 PM. Tickets are $50 dollars per person.
