16th Annual Keep the Promise
Wine Tasting Benefit

September 15, 2022Big Canyon Country Club, Newport Beach

You are invited to join us for the 16th Annual Keep the Promise Wine Tasting Benefit™ to support programs that transform the lives of under-served youth in Orange County. Twelve spectacular wines from around the world, all rated 100 points, have been generously donated by wine lovers and steadfast supporters, John and Janice Markley. This inspiring evening includes a “blind” tasting, signature hors d’oeuvres, an exciting silent auction, an opportunity drawing, and much more.

All proceeds benefit The Wooden Floor’s comprehensive dance, academic and family services programs that support nearly 500 under-served youth each year. When we tell our youth, “From here, you can step anywhere” we promise that we will see them through high school and on to college. Please join us in keeping this promise!

Sponsorships starting at $1,500 guarantee your place and are available now.
Individual tickets on sale August 8, 2022.
