The inaugural “Wine on the Roof” benefit for the nonprofit WiSH Education Foundation is set for the roof of the Macy’s parking garage at Westfield Valencia Town Center Mall on Thursday, May 17, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Guests will enjoy beautiful lighting, music, photo opportunities and more in a special evening to raise funds for the WiSH Education Foundation, which supports programs and initiatives in the William S. Hart Union High School District that are not funded by tax dollars alone.

With encouragement to do a “sister event” to the popular “Cocktails on the Roof,” this one with wine as the focus, we teamed up once again with Eve Bushman of Eve’s Wine 101 and Marlee Lauffer, president of the Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital Foundation, for Wine on the Roof. This gathering promises to be like nothing else offered in our region.

WiSH is also working with Steve Lemley as another co-host for this unique event. Lemley is a well-respected SCV winemaker who co-owns the SCV Custom Crush Services. He will curate our wines from his local facility that houses more than 20 different wineries.

Most if not all the featured wines will be making their debut that evening, and there will be winemakers seated throughout the venue to allow for interesting and knowledgeable discourse.

Wine on the Roof has a distinctive layout to allow for camaraderie and conversation and you will be treated to a multi-course dinner. Because this is seated dining, a limited number of tickets is available.

Ticket pricing is set at $125 per person or $200 per couple. Please note that after April 15, the prices will be $150 or $275.

More information is available and tickets can be purchased at www.WiSHscv.org.

Collaborators: Winemakers, Chefs, and Restaurants
Included so far in our lineup are Chef Daniel Otto’s debut from his soon to open restaurant, Chef Lucio Teraza of Olive Terrace Bar and Grill, Chef Ignacio “Nacho” Munoz and Pastry Chef Kristina Waggoner of Salt Creek Grille, Chef Louis Pechan of Hundred Miles LA, the Culinary Team at Bonefish Grill, Chef Trevor of the Newhall Press Room, Chef Martin De La Cruz of Wolf Creek Restaurant and Brewing Company, the baristas of Honu Coffee, the sweet makers from Nothing Bundt Cakes and the Beams of Sweat Beams Ice Cream.

We will definitely be starting our evening with appetizers, then bread from the one and only infamous Speakeasy Bakery, mains, dessert – all with wines from winemakers exclusive to Pulchella Winery. Santa Clarita winemakers at press time include Steve Lemley, Nate Hasper, Mark Blatty, Scott Page-Pagter, Doug Minnick, Ted Behlendorf and Dan Erland Andersen.

Early Bird Tickets and Sponsorships Now Available
Tickets go up in price after April 15, so get them now. Only 200 will be sold.

The Facebook event page has updated info and has a very interactive “discussion” tab.
