Making Democracy Work

Annual Wine Tasting Benefit

Save the Date of Sunday, April 15, 2018 for the 45th Annual LWV of Butte County Wine Tasting Benefit

The 45th Annual League of Women Voters Wine Tasting Benefit will take place on Sunday, April 15th at Lakeside Pavilion, 2565 California Park Drive in Chico. It is the longest-running event of its kind in the north state. Each year in April, we welcome over 35 vendors from the traditional wine country, the Sacramento valley and beyond. Our event is well-known for its delicious gourmet appetizer spread we provide to pair with over 100 fine wines and craft brews.

Proceeds from this fundraiser go to support the League's year-round voter service and information programs, as well as many candidate forums and proposition Pro & Con sessions that we host throughout Butte County during the busy election season.

We depend on the participation and support of community members, our media sponsors and many generous wine and beer vendors to pull this event off each year.

Many thanks go to this year's media sponsors: the Chico Enterprise-Record, Chico News & Review, Stott Outdoor Advertising, and BobFM Radio 92.7.

Supporting us as Ticket Outlets this year are these three retail locations: Made in Chico and Zucchini & Vine in downtown Chico, and Butte County Wine Co. in downtown Oroville. Admission is $40 in advance and $45 at the door.
