Bonsall Rotary’s Wine, Brews and Blues event supports local charities

BONSALL – This year’s Wine, Brews and Blues Festival is almost here! On May 18, every Bonsall Rotarian will be extremely busy starting at 8 a.m. to set up the Wine, Brews and Blues event that will start at 5:30 p.m. at the Center for the Performing Arts in Escondido.

Certainly fun, celebration and camaraderie are a main factor for all of this work but there is another reason. Bonsall Rotary members put on this event every year to help their Charity Partners raise money for their own endeavors. Through the Charity Partner program, organizations join Bonsall Rotary in the fundraiser to sell tickets. Charity Partners are rewarded with the majority of ticket sales money going to their organizations.

Current Charity Partners which were involved in last year’s event have been able to utilize these funds to help their groups include:

Fallbrook Land Conservancy, which sold the most tickets for last year’s event, and used those funds to help support several of their projects including management of their Advertisement

preserves. According to Jennifer Anderson, "Fallbrook Land Conservancy will use money raised at this year’s event to help spearhead efforts to create a ‘Walkabout Web,’ a system of trails throughout Fallbrook and neighboring communities to provide access to park, preserves and downtown shopping areas."

Likewise, Bonsall Education Foundation also benefits as a Charity Partner. "The funds raised in this year’s event will help us fund our music and visual arts program in the Bonsall School District" said Desiree Burkhart.

The Fallbrook Animal Sanctuary which is also a Charity Partner looks forward to the funds simply providing day-to-day support of its organization’s ongoing demands for supplies, food, medication, etc.

According to Bonsall Rotary president Cassandra Costa, "We are very proud of the assistance we are providing the organizations in our community and, of course, we appreciate the help they provide us in selling tickets and supporting us. It truly is a win-win situation."
